True friendship requires loyalty during all kinds of times.
There is a vast difference between knowing someone well and being a true friend. When loyalty is present a relationship is secure and solid. When it is not, we live in insecurity and fear.
As a loyal person we say, “It doesn't matter what happens around us or between us there is nothing that can make me turn my back on you.”
I Corinthians 13:7 says: “Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
