the song says "you find out who your friends are" and really, that's true. people drift apart as they grow. sometimes this is good, sometimes this is bad. untruths and lies are spewed from wagging tongues. but if there's anything we all would do well to remember, it's that people change, and not always for the better. but God places people in our lives for a reason, and when they leave, there's often someone else already there. and beyond all human relationships, both real and fake, there is the greatest friendship of all, the one we have with our Saviour, Jesus Christ. the Lord is not our lover, but He is our friend. He will always be there for us, forgive us, and protect us.

this world is cruel, and we're all woefully sinful.
perhaps more people would do well to remember that.
perfection in a friend is unattainable.
perfection in this life is unattainable.
but we are perfect and whole in the grace of Jesus Christ.
He's the greatest friend any of us will ever, ever have.
