Amos 5:14 You talk about God . . . being your best friend. Well, live like it.
My cousin Melchi left a message wishing me Happy Birthday. He is so dependable and loves me unconditionally. I absolutely love him–and his wife, Jo. But I’ve taken him for granted since I was a teen, He’s there when I need him and when I don’t need him, he sort of stands on the side lines of my life waiting till I call for him. And every time I do, he’s there. And he never asks me where I’ve been or why I have not called in a while.
God loves like Melchi Annan loves and more. I really must make effort to start treating God and Melchi Annan in proportion to how I feel about them.
