We need more than friends. We need individuals who intentionally help us grow—who speak into our lives and others into whose lives we can speak. This is the way God created us. This is how God created the body of Christ to function (see 1 Corinthians 12:14-17, 19-22, 26; Ephesians 4:15-16; Philippians 2:3-4; Hebrews 10:24-25).
