To find God’s friends, you don't have to know everything about the Bible. You don’t have to have all of the right answers. You don't have to approve of everything they say and do. You just need an open heart. People can carry a lot of shame. You can be a shame breaker, by finding common ground and accepting people for who they are as a human being. Your acceptance and your friendship will often speak more powerfully than anything else. You demonstrate the friendship of God when you reach out and value people who feel far from God, alienated by religion, and devalued by society. The friend God wants you to find may be someone you would not normally talk to. That means you need to open your heart. We’re speaking for Jesus himself now: Become friends with God; He’s already a friend with you.
