Caring for another means loving God more than them. Caring for your parents, siblings, church friends, is about putting Christ at the head of every one of those friendships. If your friendship doesn't depend on the other person serving you and making you perfectly happy, then friendships can go long term. Remember, all people are sinners. ALL people are sinners. They will always fail you at some point. They will always say the wrong thing, do the wrong things, and generally not keep you completely happy (which is probably a good thing, hopefully they're exhorting you towards Him). You will disagree. You will have fights. But if Christ is the anchor in your friendships, then you won't be running off and pouting in your corner all the time.
