  • God allows people to come into our lives on borrowed time. It's like a friend lending you a sweater. You never know when that friend will ask for the sweater back. And when he or she does, you'll have to return it. The sweater doesn't belong to you and neither do the people in your life. God only lends them to us on borrowed time for a special reason.
