A son or a friend
Who is dearer or closer?
A son sees what happens behind the scenes
A son sees their parents without “make- up”… he sees the real deal
A son is aware of the the struggles in the family
A son sees the raw pain in their parent’s eyes after a loss
Or when they are disappointed
A friend shares burdens, sometimes
Even if close, a friend is not really part of the family
True, a friend can be closer than a brother
Yet a son sees the sacrifices made to make ends meet
A friend can walk away
A son remains a son no matter what
A friend or a son?
I am a son of God
Thank you Jesus for making this possible
Beloved, what a great honor it is to be called sons of God.
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 1 John 3:1 (KJV)
