In life, friends always help, care for and love each other. However, because of profit and different opinions and views on things, friends often have conflicts and estrangement with each other, and even turn against each other. So how can we maintain good friendships and build stronger friendships? Read these Bible verses about friendships and you will find the correct way.
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he has not another to help him up. 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so does the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel.
2 He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart. 3 He that backbites not with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor.
5 Open rebuke is better than secret love. 6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
17 Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.
Many will entreat the favor of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that gives gifts.
He that walks with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
A man that has friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.
1 Corinthians 15:33
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
He that goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flatters with his lips.
24 Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man you shall not go: 25 Lest you learn his ways, and get a snare to your soul.
1 Corinthians 5:11
But now I have written to you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortionist; with such an one no not to eat.
