Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:
1 Peter 4:8-10
Friend: pal, buddy, chum, mate, BFF, companion, ally, comrade, associate.
There are many words to describe a friend, and many ways in which friendship is shown. We all have them, sometimes we mistreat them, sometimes we wish we had more. However, we all know that true friends will laugh with us, cry with us, fall-out with us and be there for us.
