Welcome to our Bible study as we prepare for the upcoming message on 'Gratitude for Friendships and Unity.' In this study, we will reflect on the importance of friendships and the unity that transcends boundaries. Let's explore key passages and questions to help us connect with the message. Remember, it's not just about the Pilgrims and Native Americans; it's about the power of friendship in our lives today.
"Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose."
"A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need."
"Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble."
"There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends."
Take a moment to reflect on the friendships and unity in your own life. How have your friends supported you in times of need? What does unity mean to you, and how do you express your gratitude for the friendships you hold dear?
