Get to know your neighbors. Learn about their families, their work, their views. Get together with them, if they are willing, and do so without being pushy and without any ulterior motives. Friendship should never be offered as a means to an end; it can and should be an end unto itself.

“Jesus also said that we ought to be friendly with each other. He said, “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” (john 13:34). Because the creator recognized love & friendship as one of our needs, he gave us a natural, instinctive desire to try to satisfy it. That is, everyone hungers for appreciation. We have a natural need to be loved, and everyone wants to feel that his own life is worthwhile. One of the most devastating of all human emotions is the sense of being alone, of being unloved, and of being unimportant. The feeling of not being wanted, of not being worthy, of not being important is causing far too much distress in our civilization and among our church membership.
We need each other. This means that we should bring everyone into full church membership and into full church fellowship & activity. The fact that the Lord has told us to do it is an indication that he thinks we can do it if we will. We might inquire of ourselves why we don’t.”

It is one of the severest tests of friendship to tell your friend his faults. So to love a man that you cannot bear to see a stain upon him and to speak painful truth through loving words, that is friendship.

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.

Let us as Latter-day Saints reach out to others not of our faith. Let us never act in a spirit of arrogance or with a holier-than-thou attitude. Rather, may we show love and respect and helpfulness toward them. We are greatly misunderstood, and I fear that much of it is our own making. We can be more tolerant, more neighborly, more friendly, more of an example than we have been in the past. Let us teach our children to treat others with friendship, respect, love, and admiration. That will yield a far better result than will an attitude of egotism and arrogance.

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to put them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
