Love your brother like your soul; guard him like the apple of your eye. [Gospel of Thomas 25]
Those who share our spiritual quest should be our dearest friends. St. Augustine wrote that a good friend is "half of our soul."
Our special friends are special blessings from God, providing the soil where we best grow to that fullness of life to which we are called.
To Practice This Thought:
Be open to making new friends and showing your appreciation to the ones you already have.
