I have a passion to know people. I'm not content with a "hi, how are you?" relationship. There needs to be more than passing a person on the sidewalk on the way to class. I want to know what motivates them, what makes them tick, and what experiences they have to bring to the table of life. Yet we tend to be so guarded and iffy of a person's intentions...like if someone starts to get to know another, suddenly they have to be dating and the pressure is put on. So ridiculous.
My friend Traci once told me that my friendly is her flirting. Sometimes I can come off as flirting when I really have a genuine desire to get to know someone. I wish all assumptions could be put aside. Jesus called us to be a community of believers...So my challenge for myself this week is to get to know someone, ask them what they are really all about. And also to find something new out about an old friend...friendships and the intricacy of humanity is so precious in this life.
