In one of his most formative books, A Resilient Life, Gordon MacDonald suggests these questions about the kinds of people we have in our lives. Who are they, for you…..?

Who coaches you?
Who stretches your mind?
Who listens to and encourages your dreams?
Who will protect you?
Who are those who share your tears?
Who rebukes you?
Who plays with you?
Who seeks after God with you?

…..worth an ask,…right?
