Have you ever asked yourself this question: What is the difference between Friend and Fiend?
Well, let me share the burden with you, and relieve you of some troubles trying to crack your brain to get the answer.
Now before I try to answer that, I will like you to have a little understanding of the two words -Friend and Fiend.
A friend is someone who you know very well and someone you like a lot to hold close to your heart or even if the person is not yet inside your heart, the person is just very close.
A friend can also be said to be someone who can stand in for you when the going goes though; someone who can always lend a shoulder to cry on when you are down.
Okay that said, now lets have a little understanding of who a fiend is.
A Fiend according to my small dictionary means: An evil Spirit, a Cruel or wicked person, someone who is diabolically wicked, a very implacable and malicious foe. A foe…. come on…. a foe simply means that a fiend is an enemy!!!!
Ok in case you are still wondering why I asked the question in the first place, let me now tell you that the main difference between FRIEND and FIEND is “R” which stands for RELATIONSHIP.
That said, a Friend is someone who you have a kind of relationship with, be it casual, deep, shallow, strong, or any definition you might give it, but a Fiend is simply a foe – an enemy, and who needs an enemy in their lives? The answer without even you opening your mouth to say it is NO ONE.
Friendship can be both Godly and ungodly, and we are equipped with the required sense of reasoning on what exactly is Godly or ungodly.
The question now is: Are there any set of Rules for a Godly Relationship?
