As a continuation from the series of the knowing the difference between Friend and fiend, we understood that a friend is someone with who you have a sort of relationship with, while a foe is someone who is a foe or an enemy.
We also went to the extent of asking if there is any rule for a Godly Relationship, and on answering this question, I will yes a “BIG” – YES!!!.
Many people might not find this as a rule, but I will say that if you are able to adhere to this, you will a better person.
- Understanding: To be a better friend, you must develop an understanding of who you are dealing with. Understanding your friend is very crucial if indeed you want a lasting relationship.
- Love: Without overemphasizing this, a relationship without Love is doomed to fail. True Love and not Lust is the engine / life-wire of any TRUE selfless relationship
Ok, without sounding very odd, I must say that the Golden Rule that guides all Relationships is LOVE. Love is when those that are offended go the long way of looking for their offender and makes peace or settles with them, and even go to the extents of giving them their best.
This makes it the most important virtue to have, because any friendship built on Love (selflessness) and not selfishness (lust) will survive the turbulence of life.
