Like an anchor holding fast within a squall
One who cherishes your friendship as you do
Your companion through both grief and joy
Always willing to look past your faults with gracious myopia
Listener more than talker, good one to help keep your head level
Trusted friend who knows you at your worst and best
Yoke fellow who eases the burden of life’s journey
Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
The word loyal does not appear in the Bible, but it is demonstrated in the friendship of David and Jonathan. Although Jonathan stood to inherit the throne from his father Saul, he knew God had anointed David to be the next king, and yet Jonathan bore absolutely no malice or jealously toward David whatsoever. Instead, he protected his friend from the rage of his father, even at the risk of his own life. Now that is loyalty!
