I once had a friend whose only friend, other than me, was his pet poodle. He didn’t like building friendships, because he theorized that they all eventually will come to an end. The same is true of the possessions we accumulate. Eventually, they all will become nothing.
In the kingdom of God, however, friendships can and should endure for all eternity. Build friendships with as many people as possible, and expect them to last beyond your expectations. Take stock of each friendship you build, and estimate its value to the kingdom of God.
