Jesus, I want us to be better friends. How many times have I sought friendship in others and been disappointed because they weren’t perfect? And it’s so easy to see You as so perfect that I relate to You only as my best pair of Sunday shoes. From now on, could I also know You as my most comfortable pair of casual slip-ons?
I’ve put this desire in your heart because it’s my desire too. And since I don’t inspire vain desires, you can be assured that you will see little signs of this new closeness popping up in your life … I am very glad to be your friend!
