Continued thoughts from The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse . . .
“’Doing nothing with friends is never doing nothing, is it?’ asked the Boy” in The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse. Jesus said, “I call you friends.” If we were servants, we would need to be attentive to the next command. But apparently Jesus our Friend wants us to relax in his presence. “Just be with me,” he says. We are free to do absolutely nothing with Jesus, but that’s never doing nothing. It’s imbibing living water and feeding on the Bread of Life and letting God live in us and knowing we’re safe within the sheepgate and becoming more like Jesus our Friend through spiritual osmosis.
