Friend

Friend – (noun) 1. A person you know and have a bond of mutual respect with, typically not of sexual or family relations.

A friend is similar to family, but not usually as deep of a connection.

2. According to ‘ampproject.org‘, the Christian “God has specific expectations of what a friend must be willing to do for a friend. These expectations include:

1) remaining loyal and helpful during good times and bad,

2) speaking the truth (tactfully) even when it hurts,

3) demonstrating the kind of love described in 1 Corinthians 13, and

4) being willing to lay down one’s life should the need arise. This final expectation as set forth in John 15:13 is the ultimate test of Biblical friendship.”

According to the Christian Bible (as one might expect), this is the only true definition of a friend.
