Value of friendship
Friendship are valuable because through them we can receive love and support, encouragements, specific help, and even criticism that will helps us grow in Character.
Some friends also have danger, for some friends is like a snake on the grass;can give bad advice, double-cross us, hurt us when they pull away from us, and even lead us away from the Lord.
Value of friendship will be finding between Ruth and Naomi. “Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried may the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me.”(Ruth 1:16-18) this friendship is not easy to give up even at the end of their life. A good friend must be remaining even obstacles comes, a friend with united principles and it can be understand to each other and a friend is not idealistic but to be realistic to both of them.
Jonathan and David are another example of good friendships. They have strong relationship and commitment with their friendship. From this passage (1 Samuel 20:41-41) “then they kissed each other and wept together- but David wept the most,” many readers of this text of the Bible misrepresented. They conclude that one of them are gay probably Jonathan. This is another deception of our enemy. This was happened to them because of its beyond situation. David is in danger as king Saul commanded that David needs to die. Now! As easy like ABC that Jonathan and David have good relationship as friend and it’s hard to them to break it down or to be separate. Because of their commitment to each other only death can separate them. They wept of their inner heart. They wept from their condition and they wept for the possible result after David died. And they wept also for the nation to be affected. Love and sworn friendship with God witness and descendants is along time friendship and they need to be protected themselves as soon and possible.
True friends relationship that even they are separated still Love and concern remain.
