A few nights ago I had a conversation with my adopted brother. He’s
not my actual family’s adopted brother – we just adopted one another.
Like how the Bible says of Johnathan and David “And their souls were
knit together”. True kinship and spiritual friendship. He’s one of a
few friends I have like this in my life and when you get several
friends like this – male, female, old or young – you know that God has
truly blessed you.
This friend, however, is the type of friend I believe every person
should have in their lives because he speaks Truth – no punches, no
innuendos, no hesitation. In fact, if I had to give him a nickname it
First name: Stone
Last name: Cold
He is a straight up, stone cold hustler for the Lord. If I had to
describe him with a scripture it would be Matthew 21:12-13, where
Jesus flipped the tables and chairs over on the merchants because they
were selling in the temple courts. That’s right…Jesus set it off! He
was stone cold, straight up about his father’s business. Yes, he was
kind and merciful and healed wounded people. But he was not playing
around when it came to God’s business.
I thank God for my friends who get stone cold with me – with love. It
reminds me why I’m here and who I represent.Advertisements
