Today's Scripture: "But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep." Jn 10:26

5875. Disharmony leads to disassociation. JG


See it.


Live it.

Talking with an old friend this week, discussions of our past common church association came up. While we each had certain people we knew, few, if any of them, remained with the passage of time. Even my friend and I managed to go different ways and not see each other for many years. The good news is we each managed to keep our marriages intact. Our reunion today included meeting children whom I did not get to see grow up. I apologized for not staying in touch but the same could be said of him.

After today's reunion, I needed to get in touch with another common friend but his phone number was not in my phone's contact list. That proves he is not someone with whom I frequently speak. Is he my friend? Sure. More than an acquaintance, he is a good friend with whom I have a few things in common but not enough to make him a close friend, certainly not an intimate friend. The end of the matter is to call him a friend and add his phone number to my contact list. Do I plan on spending time with him? Not really. That's reserved for my only intimate friend, Jesus.

Pray it.

Thank You, Jesus, for friends who share with me a friendship with You.
