God as our Best Friend

Categories: Friendship

Ask your students to list what makes a good friend. Review the list and see if any of those characteristics apply to God. Discuss how to make God their best friend. Ask them to set personal goals to know and understand God as their best Friend. Establish a review and fruitage time. Ask the students how many weeks would be good for the first review. I find after the first week, it is good to give them a quick reminder to help them stay the course. Send them a tickler email about working on that most important relationship. I've had many students discover that when they made God their best friend, they had more friends who had similar goals and qualities in life – hence stronger and more lasting friendships.

Help your students to realize the best friend they'll ever have is God. Their relationship with God will become the foundation of their lives.
