A good friend is like an image of God. God, who is the creator, knows our past, our present and even our future. God guides our destiny with love. God welcomes us as we are and loves us unconditionally. Even when we go wrong, God comes after us and tells us : “Fear not, I am with you”. Real good friends too, know our past, our present and even our future. Good and longing friends welcome the other as he or she is even in their ups and downs in life. There is no fear in the presence of a real friend. If you have not experienced God, a real friend can help you to experience God. Can you find an image of God in any of your friends? Can you love your friend as he or she is?
