Man is meant to live in relationship. We need friends. Just like a bird needs a nest or a plant needs water, we need friendship. There is nothing better than having old friends. But without a lot of growth, there will never be old friends. I don’t want a friend who says things perfectly. I would rather a friend who is willing to stand by me and say the wrong thing than to have a friend who stays away. A friend is one of the most wonderful things I can have, and a true friend to others is one of the best things I can be.
I’m thankful for the best friend of all Jesus Christ. And I strive toward being a friend like him.
