On Family, Familiarity, and Fear

"Familiarity breeds contempt,"
I have heard them often say.
It's wise to not be too frequent,
It's important for one to have his own space.
But, frequency is not the same as familiarity;
Familiarity and family go together.
True friends see each other's weaknesses,
And, they help each other grow strong.

These fig leaves that hide false shame
Will not remain for very long.
The desire for human honor
Only tears humans apart.
But, He gave us garments
Washed in His blood.
He came and lives in us,
We are the sons of God.

The closer I draw to Him,
The deeper grows my love.
The closer He draws to me,
The greater He shows His love.
