Bible verses about friendship: What does the Bible have to say about the subject friendship.

Friends play a very important role in our life and we should be very careful in terms of choosing our friends. The whole Bible really is a book about  friendship it's one of the major themes  that we find in the Bible is about friendship because if  we just start in the book of Genesis we really begin to see the theme of  friendship (For reference read Genesis 1:1)

But the modern world has completely changed the definition or real meaning of a Friend for many, it has more based on social media or in a shared interest but as a disciple of Jesus we are called to pursue something more intimate and deeper.

A friend is someone who knows your soul it's not just someone that you have a  shared hobby with or occasionally hangs out with it's someone who knows the real you who knows what's really going on inside. The Hebrew word for friend is very closely related to the word for secrets because a friend is someone you tell your secrets.

Here are some Bible verses about friendship that you should learn and follow them in your life to make your life more meaningful with the friends you are surrounded with.
