The Friendship Letters
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
- Matthew 7:12
The Friendship Letters (eBook)
"Friendship is one of the greatest gifts God has given us to enjoy on this earth, but it also can come with a lot of problems and sadness. That’s because you and your friends…or the people you want to be friends with…are all sinners. If we were all perfect, then we’d all be perfect friends and there would never be any problems. That’s a bit sad to hear, isn’t it? But there is good news too. The Bible actually has a lot to say about friendship that can help us to deal with the problems of friendship and also how we can be the kind of friend God would want us to be. Faith is a kid just like you. And just like you, she faces problems with friends. But she’s learning to use God’s Word more and more for her problems. That's why her parents named her "Faith". Every time she has a new problem with a friend, she learns what the Bible has to say about it and prays for God’s help. When we learn God’s Word and how to trust in Him, our faith grows bigger and bigger…and our problems feel smaller and smaller!"
