Whatever leisure time we are able to invest in relationships is time well spent. (Charles Swindoll, pastor and author)

Life is so busy for many people that they don’t seem to have time to establish close relationships. They work with or for people, and they see people in the store, at the gas station, and at community events, but most of those associations are brief and transient. Swindoll suggests we should spend time and effort to establish lasting friendships.

A man who has friends must himself be friendly. . . . A friend loves at all times, (Proverbs 18:24 and 17:17).
