I was thinking about relationship this morning. We all like to have friends who unconditionally love us, always understand and support us, and are most patient with us. The only one that fits the bill is the Lord our God. On the other hand, having made us to understand his love, God needs us to love him and spread his love around the world. Thus, we have an ideal match-up here. Let's work to establish this close relationship in this life, the only chance we've got.
