A friend called me today from the town where he now lives. “Hey, I was thinking of you and decided to call. How are you?”
As it turns out, I had thought of him two days ago and intended to make the same call. But I was busy and forgot—until today. Kinda funny, right? Except this has been a pattern between me and this friend.
“Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable?” Proverbs 20:6 (NLT)
My goal is to act as the Spirit leads, not simply to acknowledge a good idea and hold good intentions. To bless a friend with a reciprocal relationship, sometimes we just need to pick up the phone.
