As I have often said, "We can never have too many". Most people agree, I think.
But often we take our friendships for granted. We can even live in the same community but lose touch. We move around. We age. And people we considered friends pass away, frequently without our knowing.
Thus, it is no wonder that in his last words to his disciples, Jesus spoke of friendship.
"Friends," he said, "love one another."
Call up a frriend or two today with whom you have lost contact. Search for new friends, remembering, "you can never have too many."
