Osage Orange Sprouts

This Osage Orange tree in the foreground has stems growing up from the roots. This tree has thorns which makes it hard to approach. 

Some people are hard to approach. By their nature it is not easy to talk to them or befriend them. Yet, all people have value and deserve friends. We should not write off those who are not easy to be friends with. Instead, we should show kindness even when we don't receive anything in return.

Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

Father, give me Your love for others.

  1. most effective way to keep people away is anger. When you are angry your brain looks like you are high on cocaine only the drugs released by the brain in a time of anger or rage is 20-100 times more powerful than the highest dosage of cocaine the body can withstand. The danger is we go against Scripture that call us to be members one of another. (Romans 12:5) There is much more to this subject that it's at least a start.
