Jesus’ rule for friends.


What Jesus says about friends?


"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity." "My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.


Talk about the things that can make you and others unhappy.   Introduce saying sorry and what it means to forgive each other so we can mend broken friendships.

  1. What will happen when you are happy together?
  2. Why do you like your friends?
  3. What makes a good friend?


Children to make a circle of friends using a paper chain of cut out people.  Children to draw their own outline but adults to help fold and cut.


Discuss why it is important to have friends. Talk about forgiveness and saying sorry.

Peter said that he would stand by Jesus’ side until death (Matthew 26:31-35). Jesus knew that Peter would deny Him. All four of the gospels record Peter’s denial. But before the Lord returned to Heaven He went to Peter in John 21 and showed compassion and forgiveness to him. Though Peter had denied Jesus, Jesus knew that he would be a man who would boldly proclaim the saving grace of God to the world.

Finish with a prayer about friendship.
