Terry says he sometimes wonders what kind of person he is; many do this sort of self-examination. We need to be honest with ourselves and know that there are things which we need to work on. The scripture reading found Paul writing of just such a moment as he reflected upon the time when he persecuted the church. So, what kind of person am I? Someone that can be trusted? Someone that others would come to for advice? Someone that others would like to spend time with? Terry asks what kinds of qualities make a good friend.
