The Day of Love and Friendship. Do You Have anything To Celebrate? Thinking about the day of love and friendship. We often ask ourselves if we have true friends. However, it is very convenient to look in our own mirror: Are we really good friends with someone? Try to see yourself like “your friends” see you and ask yourself if you have behaved with them as a true friend. Do not expect to have true friends, if we have not been true friends. Jesus taught us: Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you (Matthew 7:12) and he also said: There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends (John 15:13). Good friends does not judge their friends and love them despite knowing their faults; they get involved in the problems of their friends and feel sorry for them; if they have to correct their friends, they do it with love and give them the freedom to think aloud in their company. It does not make sense to celebrate the love and friendship Day, unless we really offer our true friendship.
