Are they the ones who always want something from you either directly or indirectly or are they the ones who always like being with you just because you are you. True friends are there when you have your face in the mud as well as when your life is really sweet. The true friend does not leave when the air is filled with allegations or lies, but they stay by your side and see the storm through. You, on the other hand also need to look at your actions toward your friends when they are faced with the storm. How true are you? How willing are you to stand behind them and be counted? This is not always an easy thing to do as Peter found out when confronted about his friend Christ. It is not what you say but what you do that counts.
