I was going to end my post there (...so there you go) when I realized that it was a very inadequate perspective. For a Christian, there can never be the resignation "this is the way I am". For the reality is that Christ's Spirit is ever working in me (in us) to make us more like Christ--in this case Christ who is the ultimate friend. I ought not simply wait for the last day for my heart and motives to be changed, although on that day the final blow will be levied against my sin, for He is at work now. And it is my calling to respond to His work by striving to live ever more as is befitting one who is being remade in His image. Thus it is now my responsibility to seek to be a better friend to those I have and to be one at all to those I don't yet. I guess my last comment in the previous paragraph was intended to convey the sentiment that although I would like to be different, I have no interest in hiding who I really am. Thankfully, God has promised to change who I really am.
All that said, let me say that if any of the five mentioned above happen to read this, I'm free to meet at Kayak's Coffee pretty much any time.
