Friendship - The value of friendship - Story
« on: February 05, 2013, 08:43:47 AM »
VALUES:   Friends; Friendship.

STORY:    When we bought our new TV set with Sky TV, the neighbours gathered round that Saturday to help us put up the satellite dish antenna. Since we had only the simplest of tools, we weren’t making much progress... until a man who was new to the neighbourhood appeared with a very impressive tool box. It had everything needed to put up the dish in no time at all. As we stood around congratulating ourselves on this piece of good luck, we asked our new neighbour what he made with his fancy tools. Looking at us all, he smiled and said: “ Friends, mostly.”

Here is a poem that expresses the value of friendship.

Friendship  is a priceless gift that  can’t be bought  or sold,
Its value is far greater than  a mountain  made of gold,
For gold is cold and lifeless, it can neither  see nor hear,
And in the time of trouble, it is powerless to cheer.
It has no ear to listen, no heart to understand,
And it cannot lend a friend a loving, helpful hand.
So when you ask God for a gift, be thankful  if he sends
Not diamonds, pearls or riches, but the love of real true friends.


TEACHING POINT:

Friends are
• Those people who understand you better than you understand yourself
• Those who know you at your worst and still like you
• Those who have forgiven you even when you had no right to be forgiven.

Be as true to your friends as you would wish them to be to you.
