Re: 1-15/Wk3/Ch3: Jairus, the Two-Faced Leader
I am happy to remember that we have had friends who brushed aside my gruff manners or thoughtless moments, keeping up a friendship anyway. I could probably think of times I have done the same for them - I don't know, because I am not big on keeping score.
I'm not sure I have ever opened up enough to give a friend a chance to accept me in spite of my most private faults.
My wife has friends who shared very deeply with one another in college days. She is still friends with them, and they accept each other easily. I sometimes think women are better at friendship than men.
