The church I serve is blessed to have a wonderful lady named Sara White in our community. She put together a great list of eleven characteristics of a good friend that I thought I’d share with you! Here is her list:

  1. Loyal – stick by me in any circumstance.
  2. Honest – won’t lie to me, no matter what.
  3. Supportive – will support me in my goals.
  4. Fun to be with – wants to do things and have fun together.
  5. Good listener – will listen when I need to vent.
  6. Respectful – don’t bash others.
  7. Like my kids and husband!
  8. Want to spend time with me.
  9. Sincere – like me for me, not what I can do for them.
  10. Empathetic – I am emotional and worry. I need someone who can empathize with me and comfort me.
  11. Respond to me – don’t ignore me when I text or call!

What do you think? Would you add anything to this? Let us know!
