What Is A Good Friend?


All the points that I feel are important to what makes a good friend reminds me of my favourite hymn. The hymn is "What A Friend We Have In Jesus." These three very important things are patience, kindness, and love. If you have any troubles you can take them to Jesus in prayer. You cannot have a better friend than the Lord.

Patience is one of the virtues of life. Christ is a patient person. He takes time for everyone, even if He is busy. To be a good friend you have to be patient like Jesus. That's the way of life. When a friend is patient with me it makes me feel better. You should be patient with everybody you meet if you like them or not.

The meaning of kindness is being helpful, considerate, and generous. You need to be kind to anybody or everybody you meet, whether you know them or not. Do not hurt anybody's feelings if you can help it. If you have any troubles or worries do not despair; just take it to the Lord in prayer. You have to listen to your friend's problems. It does not matter if you are busy or not. even if you are enemies you have to love them all the same.

Love is the key word for being a good friend. You have to follow Jesus' example. You have to love your enemies as you love your friend as it says in the Bible. You show love to a friend by helping them out when they are in need. Listen to them when they have a problem and by letting them know you are always there for them. You can also offer them a shoulder to cry on.

If you follow Christ's way you will never get lost on your travels in life. You can always call on Christ in any trouble. He knows your every need, so always remember to take it to the Lord in prayer. He was your first friend; He knew you before your parents knew you.

All the points that I feel are important to what makes a good friend reminds me of my favourite hymn, "What A Friend We Have In Jesus." You have to be patient with everybody you meet in life. You also have to add a little kindness if you want to keep your friend. You have to love your enemies as you love your friends. This is what makes you a good friend.
