Some friends play at friendship but a true friend sticks closer than one's nearest kin. (Proverbs 18:24 NRSV)
"The doctor cured my hearing problem," one girl said to another.
"What did the doctor do?" her friend asked.
"She removed my iPod!"
Do we have our spiritual earphones on? A good way to find out is to ask yourself how long it has been since a friend confided in you. How long has it been since you confided in a friend? Have you closed yourself off from God? Do you feel self-sufficient?
Loving God, I'm open, please fill me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
