When I was in school I sat in a room with 40-50 other students for a semester or more, but when the final exam was finished and I walked out the door I didn’t know most of those other people any better than when we first began the initial class. I think that is probably the experience of most people – unless you happen to be an extrovert who never met a stranger. I could recognize their faces – most of them – and know who they were by sight, but because I didn’t make the effort to talk to and interact with most of those other students I never got to truly know them enough to become friends. In Genesis we are told that Abraham was a “friend of God”. How do you suppose he got that title? What did he do to have God call him friend?
