A friend makes you feel special and you want to make them feel special. You can feel the love of a true friend. There are people who say are friends but are really enemies. They are really “frienemies” Frienemies are in the Bible:
Psalms 41:9 – Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, Who did eat of my bread, Hath lifted up his heel against me. 10 But thou, O Jehovah, have mercy upon me, and raise me up, That I may requite them. 11 By this I know that thou delightest in me, Because mine enemy doth not triumph over me. 12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, And settest me before thy face for ever.
The friend in verse 9 is same person who is the enemy in verse 11.
Holy Spirit help us to identify our true friends from our frienemies.
