Holiday friendship test

You really have to think at this time of the season how far you'd go to take care of those you love. I can't go into details but suffice it to say that a good friend of our family has gotten himself into a "spot of bother". There was a debate as to whether he'd stay here over the holidays. It turned out that it wasn't necessary but it really made us think about Christian values (even though we're more of a karma-do-unto-others kinda family) and the true value of friendship. When someone reaches out to you do you slap their hand away because it inconveniences you?

It doesn't matter what religion you are. You don't turn away a friend in need. You just don't. But man, we really had to think hard about this one.
