A friend of mine gave me a book to read. I finally finished it the other day. It was good. No, it was great.
It was great because it hugely affected my life. It challenged me to think about, reflect on, and evaluate parts of my life that I tend to stay away from. My friend knew this would happen. That's why he gave it to me.
I will say no more about how my life was impacted by this book. But I will say a bit more about how my life was impacted by this friend. You see, my friend thought enough of me and our friendship to take the risk of challenging me through an author's thoughts. I'm glad he did.
My response: to make sure that I am challenging my friend(s) in ways that their lives will be enriched, altered and changed.
Maybe I need to give a book.
