While not always easier, our real friendship with Jesus makes our lives simpler. We are able to deal with the things of this world because He teaches and models everything we need to know and do. Alleluia.
...better than we know ourselves. We can't tell Jesus anything He hasn't already seen or heard. He's not going to get mad, upset, or say, "Fine, I'm not your friend anymore." Jesus is with us till the end of this journey. Alleluia.
We identify lots of people in our lives as "friends." But in the truest sense a real friend is someone with very similar moral values, that we can talk to about personal problems and issues and trust their confidence; and offers sound advice.
Friendship. We're called to a total self-giving, loving, friendship with Jesus Christ. What does that actually look like? We can start with our friendships past and present. What do those look like? Do they mirror what was mentioned above? Why or why not? More tomorrow...
