Who’s your daddy? Who’s your friend? A person who is a real friend makes the effort to know you.

Throughout life we bump into many people. Sometimes on a crowded street or party we might say “excuse me” when that happens. At other times, we seem to be only too concerned about what someone thinks about the weather, politics or any meaningless trivia that never reveals their heart or anything about them.

Jesus was never this way with people? In John 15:15 He shows us who is a real friend. Jesus lets us in on everything He heard from His father. He talked about those things closest to His heart with His friends. In Mark 8:29 Jesus asked these men a question “who do you say I am?” There was something Jesus wanted these men to know-a real friend asks meaningful questions of another because that shows they are interested in them. Jesus, the ultimate friend told His friends the truth. Take Matthew 16:24 for instance. This was a hard word but He loved them enough to tell them the truth. Do you have someone in your life who loves you enough to tell you the truth?

Do you want to know someone? Ask them a meaningful question. Do they want to know you? They will do the same with you. Think about some meaningful questions you could ask people. Always be a friend to the people God intersects your life with.
