No matter what crazy idea I have – or what massive or random thing I’m excited about – I know I have a couple of friends who will stop what they’re busy with, give me undivided attention, and get super excited with me. These are the friends who are happy to see me – whether I’m all dressed up or at home in my stokies. These friends put the wind back in my sails. They challenge and inspire me to do the same for them, and for others. Because this is how we can be Jesus to people. Jesus never dampens spirits. He never crushes hope or vision. He only ever encourages and uplifts – and he is always excited when we make time to be with him.
