True friends, a savant says, are like melons because to get a really good one, you must try 100 times.

I’m sure many of you will agree with me if I say that it’s hard to find really good friends. This is so because friendship is a commitment — that is you remain committed to your friend through thick and thin, through ups and downs, and in successes and failures.

A friend is someone who offers his/her shoulders for you to lean on.

True friends respect one another. To them, misunderstanding and non-communication are words that are taboo in a friendly relationship. If there is misunderstanding, friendship is doomed to be ruined.

A true friend is a confidante, and once his/her friend’s secret is revealed to other people, betrayal comes in, and the love and respect you once had turn to hatred and anger.

As friends, let us all be guided be a famous passage found in Corinthians. It says, “Love does not keep a record of wrong.”

As true friends, let us be forgiving. If God Himself was able to forgive those who betrayed him and caused his death on the cross, who are we not to forgive a friend who had done wrong to us?

Just recall the happy years you have shared with each other, and you would find in your heart the strength to forgive and forget because, after all, to forgive is divine.[box type=”default” size=”large”] Food for thought [/box]*Our search for truth is hindered by the darkness of the night, Until the Bright and Morning Star rebuilds His brilliant light. – Sper

*Lord grant me a forgiving heart, a will to give and share, a whispered prayer upon my lips to show I really care. – Brandt

*When you see someone in need, love the man’s unloving deed;Don’t just say you love him true, prove it by the deeds you do. – Sper

* A friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship. – John D. Rockefeller

* An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.  – Buddha
