I saw a couple quotes that spoke to me;
To be little with God is to be little for God. E.M. Bounds
A man who would know God must give time to him. A.W. Tozer
We have different levels of friends. To the coworker we say, I'm fine. To the family member we say, I had a bad weekend. To the close friend we say, I fell off the wagon. Each level is determined mostly by time invested enough to let your guard down and be honest. Nothing can make you closer to someone than opening the door to who you really are. The same is true with God. The more you talk, the more you devote, the closer the relationship.
