do you ever wonder why you pick the friends you do? do we pick people like us or are different from us?
i have many friends,i tend to call most people i meet and get to know a friend but i have only a few very close friends.it seems the people i pick to be my close friends have similar beliefs and help fulfill the qualities i admire but do not have.
for me people who are movers who are not afraid to step forward to correct problems, make decisions and follow through on plans are some of my closest friends because stagnation is very difficult for me.
many times when i think of the apostles i think of how different their personalities were from each other.when Jesus sent them out into the world he sent them by pairs i think he did this to fill each of their voids what one did not have in personality or strenght they other did giving a united force.
i do not believe God made us to be solitary beings,no man is an island, he wants us to be co-depend on each other strenghten and care for each other.
mother Theresa said we are all interconnected like parts of a watch.if you open a awatch you will see wires and springs and expensive and cheap parts but they all work together to make the watch run.
we meet the people in this life that God feels will help fulfill not only our needs but also his plans.through this unity we are allowed a more complete self with a clearer vision and a united front with the added benifet of feeling the love and kindness of another person who shares our lives and truely cares about us.
