Have you ever been in a dangerous place? In threatening locations you probably felt safer if you were not alone. The presence of your friend reassures you even if they are not skilled at defense. Have you ever had a bodyguard? This is someone trained and assigned to protect you. They should be more capable of it than an ordinary friend. I have called you to follow me. I may lead you to some unfamiliar places where you do not feel as safe as you do in your accustomed surroundings. Yet if you walk with me, I will also walk with you. I will be present with you to protect and defend you wherever I lead, as both a friend and a bodyguard.
