Episode ThemeCommunity- Building: Staying loyal to friends.
Do not forsake a friend and the friend of your father.
It's time for a friendship quiz!
Question 1: Name one of your best friends.
Question 2: Now choose 3 words to describe this friend.
Question 3: How would your friend describe you?
Friends. What would we do without our friends? In the Bible, Jonathan and David were best friends. One day, Jonathan had to give David some bad news.
"David, did you know that my dad doesn't like you? He hates you. And now he is trying to kill you."
If you were David, what would you do? Would you hate Jonathan and his dad? Would you tell Jonathan how unfair his family was? Would you stop being friends?
What did David and Jonathan do? After warning David, Jonathan gave David the very clothes and sword that he was wearing. Jonathan also tried to stop his dad.
And David? He never blamed Jonathan for what Jonathan's father was doing. After Jonathan died, David always made sure that Jonathan's handicapped son was well taken care of. Both Jonathan and David promised each other that in the name of the Lord, their friendship would last forever between them and between their future children.
Our aim in friendship should be like Jonathan and David: to not let other people destroy our friendship, to do our very best for each other, and to make sure that God is part of our friendship!
