How good of a friend are you?
What is the difference between a good friend, a best friend and a true friend?
What lengths would you go to for a friend?
When is enough, enough?
Do true friends walk that fine line?
These are the questions I had to ask myself these past couple of days. I have heard it said that a true friend would walk ten miles for you, at midnight and barefooted. I have also heard that a friend would bail you out of jail on a moments notice, but a true friend is the one sitting beside you in the jail cell saying "That was fun".
I had the rare opportunity this week to either be a friend or a true friend.
Here is the story,
The wife and I have a friend we went to school with years and years ago and she is one of the very few high school friends we still keep in touch with. It seems her oldest daughter who lived in Tennessee was being abused by her father and needed out. The mom (our friend) lives in a small apartment with her new family and did not have room for her so you guessed it, we got the phone call.
I have had other friends tell me I am dumb, just looking for trouble and can not believe we would even consider it.
I look at it this way, one day for one reason or another I might need to ask a true friend for some help they might not want to do or puts them out a little and I can only hope the people that call me a friend would step up to the plate.
The girl is here now and so far so good. She has been city raised and never been around animals so I can almost bet this will be fun.
The Lord put her here for a reason, now I have to find out what he is wanting me to do.
