Friend (Matthew 11:19)
The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and "sinners." ' But wisdom is proved right by her actions.
Read and discuss. There are other passages about Jesus being a friend but this one is more revealing. Why? Think of a good friend. Why are they your friend? What qualities do they have that make them a friend.
SCIENCE: It has been shown through various scientific studies that negative emotions can be harmful to a person’s health. Loneliness is one of those negative emotions. If we know that loneliness can have a harmful affect on our health, then conversely, friendship should have a positive affect. How and why do you believe this is a true statement? Older students may wish to do their own research to prove or disprove the statement.
LANGUAGE ARTS: Memorize and/or write a poem about friendship
JOURNAL ACTIVITY: If possible take a picture of family friends to put in your journal.
HISTORY/GEOGRAPHY: Jesus was friend to a large and varied group of individuals. Class … social or economic standing … meant nothing to him. Research the class structure of various cultures through out history and compare them to how Jesus saw and treated people.
COOKING RECIPE: Make Amish Friendship Bread from the recipe on the following page.
ART/CRAFT: Send a homemade greeting card to a friend or to someone who might need a friend. You may also chose to send a “welcome” card to someone new in your church or in your neighborhood and make a new friend.
SERVICE PROJECT IDEA: Plan and carry out several helpful chores … serving your family. You may also know of other ways that you can “serve” in your community.
SAMPLE PRAYER: Dear Jesus, thank You for being my true friend. I know that I need never be lonely with You in my life and that I can talk to You about anything and everything. Amen.
MUSIC: Learn or listen to the song called “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”
