God is our Father and other Christians are our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Our Father deeply loves and desires that we show love to each other, that is seek each other's highest spiritual good.1 Jn.3: 1 says, "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God!
Prov.17: 17 says, “A friend loves at all times.” Prov.18: 24 says, “There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.” Prov.27: 6 says, “When a friend rebukes you, that rebuke can be trusted.” Prov.27: 9 says, “The pleasantness of having a friend springs from his earnest counsel.” Prov.27: 10 says, “Do not forsake your friend.” These verses bring out the fact that the Lord blesses friendship and encourages us to develop them.
