Great definitions of what true friendship is. It truly is a blessing to have a real friend connected to our souls. I liked the line, "A true friend is one who is truthful even if it hurts because they knokw you are being set free". Nicely done.

I like your enphasis on "True" friendship. Many today aren't big on truth. They even deceive themselves. They do not have the ability to be a true friend. You are right in placing the importance on our relationship with Christ as the foundation of the qualify of friendship we are able to offer others. Your article is filled with wisdom.
I liked how you brought out about "acquiring the ability to be a true friend.... requires Christlikeness!" That was so beautiful and I'm going to feed on that line all day long! <>< Dixie

A true friend is one whos spiritually connected with your soul; they know when something is wrong, even when you are rejoicing. ... The friend that reads between the lines and sees what we attempt to veil, is a true friend indeed; a strong family trait, seen so clearly in our Lord! Very informative and sage words. Nicely done! - Nancy
