Friendship: from Wooden’s ‘Pyramid of Success’

2. Friendship: Comes from mutual esteem, respect and devotion. Like marriage it must not be taken for granted but requires a joint effort.

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. (Prov 17:17)

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. (Prov 18:24)

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)

You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. (James 4:4 )
