I need help with some quotes and insights on friendships


I am giving a small presentation on friendship and i would like some help to point me in the right direction.

What does friendship mean to you and why it is important to have Christian friendships?

Aswell if you could please give me some further direction into some quotes on friendship from either:

The Bible
Christian writings
Anything at all. Just some quotes or helpful insights.


The Bible:

“Friends always show their love. What are brothers for if not to share troubles?”- Proverbs 17:17

“A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; he who finds one finds a treasure.”

  • Sirach 6:14

“A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.”

  • Proverbs 27:19
