November POWerful Word – FRIENDSHIP – Week 3

Good friends are loyal and can trust each other. Do you know what the word “loyal” means (i.e. stick by their side even when it’s hard). When you are loyal, you aren’t friends with someone one day and then NOT friends with them the next. Who is a loyal friend to you? Loyal friends trust one another. What does “trust” mean (i.e. believe them, know they keep their promises and your secrets)? Do you have a friend who you can trust to keep your secrets, keep your promises and treat you kindly? In the following situations, what would a LOYAL friend do vs a DISLOYAL friend: (1) Someone is talking rudely behind your back about you; (2) S/he gets invited to another birthday party on the same day/time as yours- and she already told you s/he’s going to yours; (3) A group of students ask your friend to tell them something private and funny about you.

If you have time: Think of your friends. How do you how that you are loyal, kind and trustworthy?
