Friendship Like This

O, to have a friend with whom sweet fellowship is shared,

Whose love is real and unretractable

Who sees my flaws and doesn’t try to fix them

Who can tell me he hates me but we know it’s a lie

Who laughs with – not at – me

Who lets me spoil him and doesn’t expect or demand

Unselfish love.

So rare a love.

The kind that lasts forever.

Hang on to those friends with love.

“And now abideth faith, hope, charity (love) these three; but the greatest of these is charity.”(1 Corinthians 13:13)

Disagreement Is Not Necessarily Hatred

Don’t confuse disagreement with an absence of love.

Too often, if a person opposes something, the knee-jerk assumption on the part of an immature person is “you’re judging”, or “you’re hating”, or “you’re a bigot”. Those are some pretty judgy, hatey, bigoty things to call someone, don’t ya think?
