Said No Friend Ever (series recap)

Week 1-I will make you or break you

Every week we have been looking at one phrase that a friend would never say

  • No friend would ever say “I will make you or break you”
  • While they may not say that, what is interesting is that is exactly what friendships do
  • Your friends will either make you or break you
  • Your friends are leaving you with something, what are they leaving you with?
  • Your friends are taking you somewhere, where are they taking you?
  • How to pick good friends
    • Look at what they do
    • Listen to what they say

Week 2-I don’t care about you 

  • No friend would ever say “I don’t care about you.”
  • What makes a good friend?
  • Looked at the story of Jonathon and David
  • We all want acceptance
  • The need and feeling for acceptance will only get you so far in your friendships and life
  • The most important thing in a friendship is one thing
    • Mutual concern
      • I care for you
      • I care about you
      • I care about your goals
      • I care about your life
  • We all want a friend like Jonathon was to King David but how many of US are that friend.
  • Take a deep dive inside and evaluate if YOU are a good friend to others
  • Do you show mutual concern because a friend who cares shares
    • shares their life
    • shares their love
    • shares their heart
