Hey everybody! I hope u all r having a great and blessed day! I was so glad to see all of those who came today! For those who were not able to make it today, we are continuing on our series (At the Movies) and will be talking about David's life. Today's message was about friends. Your friends can be a very large influence in your life and can challenge you to do great things. At the same time u do have to be careful about what they influence you into doing. As the bible says "A man who has friends must be friendly. " so you have to be a friend back to those who treat you well. We talked about how David's greatest influence (other than God) was his best friend Jonathan. They treated each other with respect and not only did Jonathan treat David with respect but even gave David his battle armor, sword, and bow which were very special to Jonathan. He gave David his most prized possession because he was thankful for having David. This is what we should be aiming for with our friends. You don't have to give up your most prized possessions for them but be willing to do great things for them that you wouldn't do for just anyone. There were three things we talked about for how to be a great friend. 1: love others, as much as, or greater than you love yourself. 2: Be generous to others. 3: Be a trustworthy person. To sum this all up is: When you become the right friend, you will have great friends.
