“A friend loves at all times.”

In this episode, Liz, Lucille, and Morrie tackle a secret assignment—to make a new friend. But Liz learns that not all friends are good friends.

One of the important things about being a good friend is helping others stay out of trouble. If you see a friend making bad choices, don’t follow them and make bad choices too. But don’t just walk away either. Talk to them. Let them know why their choices are dangerous. Encourage them to choose the right thing.

Paul told the Christians in the city of Thessalonica to “encourage one another and build each other up” (1 Thessalonians 5:11). To build someone up means to make them stronger by helping them obey the Lord and make good choices. We all need friends who can do this for us, and we should be the kind of friends who do that for others.

Your challenge is the same as the one Liz, Lucille, and Morrie had in this episode. Make a new friend. Use the lessons they learned about how to make friends. Also make sure, like Liz did, that you’re making the right kinds of friends. It’s a good idea to let your parents know you’re doing this so they can be your friends and encourage you to make wise choices.
