Ministry of Presence

Leslie, we’ve surveyed more than 1,000 people to discover, “What is it that goes into a good friendship?”

That’s right. And we know what tops the list more often than anything else. That is, a good friend makes time for me.

Yeah. They carve time out of their busy life to spend with me. And that is a huge gift.

In fact, they even call it the ministry of presence. Just being present in my life is the biggest gift you could give me.

Think about that and your own friendships this week. In the midst of your busy life, who could you give your time to? Maybe it’s your spouse. Maybe it’s your children. Maybe it’s your friend. But know this; when you offer that to them, it’s one of the most treasured gifts they’ll receive all week.
