Primary 6 Lesson 29

Lesson

Primary 6 Lesson 29: David and Jonathan- The purpose of this lesson is to understand how to be a true friend.

I love the many beautiful examples of friendship throughout the scriptures. I also appreciate this lesson of friendship at church. While we are all supposed to love each other, especially at church, I know it doesn't always happen. I have seen it many times, unfortunately. This video came out earlier this year and it really hits home in a new way when we talk about bullying. Sometimes I think there is a disconnect with how our actions effect others.
