    So what does the Bible say that applies to having a best friend in Christ?

    • She’s loyal: “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother (or sister).” (Proverbs 18:24)
    • She’s selfless: “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
    • She’s edifying: “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17) And: “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
    • She’s a good influence: “Do not be deceived: ‘Bad company ruins good morals.'” (1 Corinthians 15:33)
    • She’s honest: “Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.” (Proverbs 27:5-6)
    • She loves you wholeheartedly: “Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” (1 Peter 4:8-10)
