I think the best friendships are those that can stand the test of time. . . (Steve Pavlina, motivational speaker)

Pavlina continues: “. . . where the friendship is based more on who you are than on what you do or what you have.” When we were kids, friendships came easily, and we didn’t stop to think much about the kind of people they were or if they were rich or not. As we matured, we found that Pavlina is right. It’s people with strong character qualities that make the best friends.

A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need. . .  As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. (Proverbs 17:17; 27:17)
