“Friend like a brother” is that person who fights for us, who is considerate and makes us feel as if they were from our own blood. It’s like it’s written:
“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” (Proverbs 17:17)
We all have that friend who is going through a moment of anguish. It is exactly at this moment that we must reach out to them.
The Bible reminds us of a character who exemplifies this well: The good Samaritan.
“But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.” (Luke 10:33-34)
If we observe this, the good Samaritan went to that person who had fallen. He wasn’t concerned about changing the path of his journey. He used his own money to help that injured man, and he didn’t do it for reward or recognition, but because he was a true person with a good heart.
