In the life of each of us, there are a few people we can count on. For some of us it’s our spouse, or children. For others it’s a good friend.
What is it that causes us to set those people apart from others?
Is it that we are certain they have our best interests at heart? That at a given time, they put us ahead of their own self-interests?
Some people are users; they like us because they need something from us. Mostly, we’re able to see that, but sometimes, not. Sometimes, we’re fooled—and often disappointed.
Turn it around. Do we hang around some people only because we need/want something from them?
This is a test of character. Character that is, or isn’t, LOVE in action. Because we all know that LOVE means action, not words. There are people who can “tickle our ears” with what they think we want to hear; but they are not people who will stand by us, regardless. Let the first wind come–a wind that requires them to step forward and actually stand up for us–and they are nowhere to be seen.
Who will stand up for you?
