Mark of Biblical Friends...

“The mark of biblical friends is that their friendship draws you closer to Christ. They ‘sharpen’ you and motivate you to do what is right. True friends tell you the truth and even risk hurting your feelings because they love you and have your best interests at heart (Prov. 27:6).”

-Henry Blackaby

*emphasis mine

This stuck out to me this morning and I thought it fit well with what I've been sharing on friendship!

Great quote and challenge -- friendships must be focused on Christ and His glory... How I wish I could have this standpoint in all interactions with others!
