Phileo is a covenant of friendship, an exchange. God exhibits phileo love in each covenant he makes with a person, family, or nation. He defends and protects them and supplies their needs. They obey God in response, separating themselves from all that is unholy. People also exhibit phileo love in the promises and contracts they make with family, friends, co-workers, etc.
