They shot arrows together as young boys through rolling wagon wheels, then at grasshoppers as they lifted above the prairie grass. They grew together as men, warriors, and leaders. Touch the Clouds saved Crazy Horse’s life a time or two and was with his friend when he died.
Who are you growing in skill with? Is there someone who has your back? Who will stick with you until the end?
The Bible says that such partners are hard to find, “Many claim to have unfailing love, but a faithful person who can find?” (Proverbs 20:6). But find them we must. And if you have one, stick close and make time to foster that bond; for we all face times when we need help from a friend.
Lastly, who are you the “Touch the Clouds” to? Do you have what it takes? Can you love another as yourself? Identify this person and be faithful.
