What is a true friend? Does the Bible give us examples to follow? Friendship supplies much-needed security, loyalty, and love. With friends being so important to them, youth want to figure out what to look for, and how to make and keep friends. Each session focuses on a quality that can raise relationships to a new level. Each quality is modeled by Bible figures—David and Jonathan (trust), Ruth and Naomi (loyalty), the Samaritan woman and Jesus (taking risks), Paul and Barnabas (reconciliation), and Jesus and his disciples (servanthood and commitment).
