Have you ever graded your friends? I mean sorted them out into categories; this is just a new acquaintance, this is a casual friend, this is a close friend, and this is a really intimate friend. Like that.

Ever since I was at a seminar where I heard that all acquaintances are divine appointments, and that we should be intentional about developing our friendships I’ve liked that idea. But it is only lately that I’ve decided to really set time aside to study my friendships, analyze them and decide how I can deliberately bless each friend in a unique way that will help them grow as a person. Already, I’m coming up with interesting thoughts and ideas.

Let me share my grading criteria with you.
