The Structure of Friendship

One evening I watched my son build a skyscraper with his structure set. He placed the foundation together, taking care to assure that the pieces holding the building were securely in place. When I asked him why it was so important to spend so much time on the foundation, he told me he had learned from previous experience that the structure would collapse without a strongly constructed base.

Later I likened my son's careful construction to the building of a lasting friendship. I became aware that true friendship founded on an understanding of God as infinite Love, or Mind, and on the expression of His qualities is firmly established.
