SCRIPTURE & DISCUSSION QUESTION

Please have 1 person read each:

Song of Solomon 5:16 “...this is my lover and my friend.”

Galatians 6:2 (NIV)  “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

Proverbs 24:26 (NLT) “An honest answer is like a kiss of friendship.”

Proverbs 17:9 (NLT) “Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.”

 

 Give each person a chance to share for 1 min: 

Dave and Ashley Willis shared that the heart of every marriage is strong friendship. They shared three principles that lead to that.

Principle 1: Friends carry each others burdens.

Principle 2: Friends should always tell each-other the truth.

Principle 3: Friends don’t give up on each other.

 

Share a time when your spouse was a true friend to you with one of these principles. Not married? How has a friend helped you carry a burden, been honest, or encouraged you to persevere?

PRAYER TIME

Pray for everyone’s marriage in your group to be stronger in friendship. For singles groups, pray for friendships to be strengthened in the same 3 areas.
