The Best Kind of People

Who are the people in your life that bring out your best?

I know who they are in mine.  The best kind of people are the ones who are genuineencouraging, supportive, and they challenge me to be a better person.

God's definitely blessed me with good friends who are living examples of the best kind of people.  

Here are the qualities I appreciate the most from these dear friends.

The best kind of people...

are loyal

are optimistic and reassuring when you feel like giving up

have faith in you

have a genuine smile 

show hospitality

offer an uplifting word 

offer comfort when you are down

are there for you when you need to confide in someone 

give wise advice

give you a sincere compliment

are straightforward when you need an honest opinion

make you laugh

take joy in your success

you enjoy spending time together

are considerate and understanding

give generously

choose to be your friend despite your imperfections

More than anything the best kind of people bring out those qualities in you.  

I want to be that kind of person. 

Proverbs 27:17
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

Hebrews 10:24
and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds

1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another, and build up one another, just as you also are doing.

Those Bible verses are such good reminders of how we should treat others.  

Here a just a few of those dear friends.  Some are near, others are far away.  I don't see some of them as often as I'd like.  Other dear friends aren't in the collage because I don't have a photo of them, but I value their friendship, too.
