A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.

2.   Believe in each other

James 2:23
Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend. 

3.  Embrace your differences.

not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

4.  Be real and transparent.

I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 

5.  Be a safe place for each other.

Proverbs 18:24
One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

6.  Have fun and be creative together. 

1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

7.  Bear each other’s burdens.
