    Peace and Blessings Family,

    How can something cost nothing? Is this possible?

    I ask the question in the most broadest of ways, wanting to encompass as many things as possible.

    Can you name any thing of value (however you determine it), that does not cost something?

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    Brother James ... with all due respect, whether you count it as a cost or not, it is an expenditure of some kind. Be it love, care, concern, support, time, energy, you are giving up something, and likewise, your friend is no doubt willingly doing the same. That's what makes it a friendship, at least a mutual one.

    Now if you are simply expending your resources, no matter what they are, for a friend that is not willing to do the same (or like) for you ... you can still call them your friend ... but you'd probably be alone in that relationship. Which is fine, if that is what one wants.

    My point though, is that it is still costing you something, vs nothing.

    You still pay, be it by obligation or willing desire of the heart, there is still a cost.

    Are you still not agreeing with me ... :)

    There is nothing in this world that dosen't have a price ......Nothing, everything cost
    it cost you to wake up each day ........Nothing of value is costless.

    cause i said it's a cost ... :D :court: :D

    Okay ... how do you define cost? I mean, how do you differentiate between something being a cost, and one not being a cost?

    Are you saying, all the stuff you wanna do (like be friends), has no cost?

    There is a great cost to the Mother, in delivering a Mother's Love ... and i'd imagine to a Father too, for delivering a Father's love.

    Great sacrifices are made, to deliver those things.
