We need friends

Yesterday, one of my close friends took off early to spend some time with me. We went to Starbucks and spend some good time talking about some personal and ministry issues. He had had an unproductive day at work and thought, "Well at least I can spend some time with my friend James." Spending time with a good friend, while sipping coffee and listening to music in the background, is a great way to get through life.

We need friends like this. I am blessed to have some close friends that I could go to for anything. In order to have these kinds of friends, however, we must first invest time in others. Call them. Ask how they are doing. Remember their hobbies, interests, and passions. And let them know that we care about them.

Is this time spent worth it? I can say for me, it certainly is.
