“HE SPEAKS approximately Bible characters as though they
were previous neighbors of his.” After listening to
a discourse by way of an aged touring overseer,
a Christian lady made that observation.
And rightly so, for the brother had spent
decades learning God’s notice and teaching
from it—so a lot in order that the Bible’s men
and ladies of religion did, certainly, appear like
old neighbors whom he had identified all his life.

make great buddies? Are they that
real to you? think what it might be like
to stroll and speak with them, to spend time
getting to grasp such women and men as
Noah, Abraham, Ruth, Elijah, and Esther.
Think of the impact they could have on
your life—the important phrases of recommendation and
encouragement they could offer!—Read
Proverbs 13:20
