Lesson 7

by | Jul 7, 2011 | Friendships | 0 comments


Honesty and trust are vital.
In John 15:15 Jesus says to his disciples, ‘I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.’ Are we willing to be vulnerable with others and to let them know what is going on inside us? ‘Being naked’ can feel risky. But at the heart of authentic friendship is trust. We need to be able to trust others and in return we need to be trusted to keep confidences and to be true to our word. As a society and as the church we desperately need to rediscover how to build authentic friendships. Change is possible. It starts with us.
