Friendship: Using your words and actions to show others you care
“A friend loves at all times. They are there to help when trouble comes.” Proverbs 17:17
Jesus showed us the greatest example of love when He laid down His life for His friends. With His words and actions, He showed friendship to everyone He met. We can reflect Jesus’ love best when we treat one another with friendship. So, this month, we will take a look at some passages and stories of friendship throughout the Bible in the lives of David and Jonathan, Elijah and Elisha, and Jesus and Peter.
Elijah and Elisha – 1 Kings 19:14-21; 2 Kings 2:1-15
Friends encourage one another.
