"Real friends came down from heaven, sent down to lead our way and light our path." What do you think about this definition of a friend? How do you define a friend? Your comments are gladly welcomed friends:)

that's a very nice definition france! :) for me, friend is a sister or brother you never had, a friend is someone who'll tap u in the back and say that she's/he's just there beside you. and also, a friend is someone who tells you 100% the truth even if it will hurt you.

Hi there mkchaves! It is true that a friend tells the truth to you no matter how hurting it is. She does not flatter you when s/he knows that what you are doing is not really good. Blessings!:)

I think it's a beautiful definition because friends can be a great support for us during hard times and they are the once, next to our family members, we turn to for advice, comfort and support. Real friends are a hard to find, and it seems the harder we look for them the less we will find. I have a couple of close friend I have met over the years. We should keep our friends close at heart.

Hello there cyberfluf! I totally agree with you that friends are next to our family members or they can even be considered part of our family members. As they say, true friends are like diamonds in the sand. Blessings!:)

For me, a real friend is someone you can tell anything to, say anything to, and be there for each other whatever life throws at you. A true friend accepts you for you, no questions asked. I have a true friend and am thankful everyday she is in my life.

A nice way of thinking. I define a friend as someone I can trust and depend on in time of need. Take care.

You cannot easily find real friend in our situation today, but if you are lucky if you found one keep him or her and cherised her for he or she is a blessing form God. Real friend is someone who is going to tell you things that can help you become a better person, A friend is a person who is going to build you not destroy you help you not put you down and in times of troubles or any problem occur they are always there for you. A good friend will lead you to christ and will show you what a Christlike life is. Thanks can we be friends? please add me thanks.
