I saw a true act of friendship
NO! NOT THAT! That:
nothing in the world would Destroy you fame: fight to keep it, Now be strong and brave my noble King, protecting life and fame Together
This wasn’t originally the quote for this post, but this one was so magnificent I decided to let it run solo today. Here, we see a friend of Beowulf, who didn’t really do anything, jumping in randomly risking his life to (basically) encourage Beowulf.
Isn’t that true friendship? Didn’t Christ say:
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)
Love is important. In other languages, like Greek, there are multiple words for love, meaning romantic love, or friendship. In English, we only have Love, and that is why many times the word “friendship” is used. Not to pat My Little Pony on the back, but Friendship really is magic, even more than magic.
PS: Think about this during the next few days:
1. Who are you friends?
2. WHERE are your friends?
3. Do you love your friends?
4. Didn’t Christ also say something like Tell you who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are? We tend to have similar interests as the people around us, and some times end up changing who we are to match them. Do you do that? Would a true friend want you to change who you are?
5. Would you lay down your life for your friends?
