Prov.17: 17 says, “A friend loves at all times.” Prov.18: 24 says, “There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.” Prov.27: 6 says, “When a friend rebukes you, that rebuke can be trusted.” Prov.27: 9 says, “The pleasantness of having a friend springs from his earnest counsel.” Prov.27: 10 says, “Do not forsake your friend.” These verses bring out the fact that the Lord blesses friendship and encourages us to develop them.

Friendship involves three foundational elements, commitment to fulfill the responsibility of a friend, care and concern for the welfare of your friend, and affection.

The word "friend" means someone you like who also likes you.

This liking involves a "friendship kind of" affection based often on personality and common likes and interests.

Marriage involves three elements, commitment, care and concern, and emotion.

When a Christian marries he or she is making a commitment to fulfill the responsibility God ordains for the husband or wife to fulfill.

We are commanded in the Scriptures to show love to all believers, but we are not commanded to make all believers our friends.

A third relationship God describes in the Bible is marriage.

A second kind of relationship is “brother-sister in Christ.” If we have accepted Christ as our Savior we have become children of God.

God is our Father and other Christians are our brothers and sisters in Christ. Our Father deeply loves and desires that we show love to each other, that is seek each other's highest spiritual good.

Brother-sister relationships in Christ involve two foundational elements, commitment to fulfill the responsibility of a fellow-believer in Christ and care and concern a believer is to have toward other believers.
