An ingredient of good friendship
Has anyone called you before and all you could talk about was the weather.? You dropped the phone and thought to yourself what a dry conversation. The person was not open.
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Jesus was open with his disciples, he told them things that were necessary.
If we are going to cultivate good friendships we need to learn to be open. A good friendship requires a level of openness.
