What A Friend!
What goals do you have for your relationships?
- SHOW ME YOUR _____, AND I’LL SHOW YOU YOUR _______.
Be friends with those who are wise, and you will become wise. Choose fools to be your friends, and you will have trouble. Proverbs 13:20 (ERV)
LIST YOUR CLOSEST FRIENDS
(Outside of family. Imaginary friend doesn’t count)
Friendships are important because they shield us, strengthen us, and shape us. That’s how God designed us.
THREE TYPES OF FRIENDS EVERY PERSON NEEDS:
A FRIEND WHO SEES SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT IN YOU – MAKES YOU ___________________.
12 …And the Lord said, “This is the one; anoint him.” 13 So as David stood there among his brothers, Samuel took the flask of olive oil he had brought and anointed David with the oil. And the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon David from that day on. Then Samuel returned to Ramah. 1 Samuel 16:12-13 (NLT)
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. Proverbs 27:17 (NLT)
A FRIEND WHO __________________________ YOU
15 One day near Horesh, David received the news that Saul was on the way to Ziph to search for him and kill him. 16 Jonathan went to find David and encouraged him to stay strong in his faith in God. 1 Samuel 23:15-16 (NLT)
A FRIEND WHO TELLS YOU THE _________________.
Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man!” 2 Samuel 12:7 (NLT)
5 An open rebuke is better than hidden love! 6 Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy. Proverbs 27:5-6 (NLT)
