I have been reflecting on the Lord's character recently. It is both a thrilling and humbling pursuit. In many ways, He is so unlike us — all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-good. But in other ways, we are called to imitate Him.
I do not call anyone else my creator or my shepherd, but I do have plenty of friends. It would be no life-changing event to add God to the list. There is no mystery. But God defines friend differently.
