Intimacy Should Be Earned, Not Freely Given.
In my life, so many friends came and gone. I can't imagine my life if it wasn't for my friends holding my hand with prayers, laughter and tears. Friendship is two way street. If I am always draining from a friend, but not given back,,,,,,,,,,,,Friendship won't last for long.
Mike Murdock put it well,
Intimacy Should Be The Reward For Proven Loyalty And Respect.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his
friends. Ye are My friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you," (John 15:13-14).
True Friendship Is A Gift, Never A Demanded Requirement.

loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity," (Proverbs 17:17).
When Wrong People Leave Your Life, Wrong Things Stop Happening.
Wrong People Birth Sad Seasons. Pursuers always have an Agenda and motive.
Spoken or not. Known or not. Pure or impure. Acceptable or unacceptable.
Whatever the motive, uncover it…whatever the cost.
Remember the story of Jonah who was running from God’s directive?
"Wherefore they cried unto the Lord, and said, We beseech Thee, O Lord, we
beseech Thee, let us not perish for this man’s life, and lay not upon us innocent
blood:...So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea
ceased from her raging," (Jonah 1:14-15).
When Right People Enter Your Life, Right Things Begin To Happen.
"There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give
Me to drink," (read John 4:7-15).
