Questions from Jess II

I've decided to post questions that we've been discussing with a dear friend of mine on Facebook. I thought that we would benefit from having them on the blog, as we could always come back to the blog and "read it anytime we want and think and, hopefully, be encouraged that we are not along in the world." Nice...I'm quoting myself her :):)

So, "lol, isnt it weird that some friends seem closer than some family!!"?

  1. Yes, Liz, it's a question, or, rather, an introduction to pondering this particular issue. Thank you for pointing out the absence of the question mark :)

  2. ...there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. (Pr.18:24)

  3. i think it has to do with to things: the way they accept you and the amount of time you see them

  4. It doesn't seem weird to me. Time spent together is one key aspect. It also makes sense in the light of the Gospel. I'll never be as close to non-Christians as someone who shares my faith. But I also wonder what role culture plays. I think the family bond in America is not as tight as in other countries. Meaning, "family first" is not always assumed.
