Elementary Friendship Talk
Over the past few weeks I have been visiting the elementary classes (2nd-6th grades) to discuss friendship. The conversation starts out with Proverbs 16:28, “A perverse man stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.” One of our goals is that your children will become close friends as they work and play together at Logos. Solomon tells us that gossip breaks friends apart. I discuss this with the students and then go on to identify other threats to friendship as well. We talk about the fact that at Logos, if you want a BFF, it’s Jesus and your family, everyone else is a good friend. We don’t want these friendships to be severed through ungodly exclusions (ignoring the 3rd wheel) or friend hogs (who dominate one person and push everyone else away). As always, please feel free to follow up on these conversations at home and let me know if you have ideas for what could be covered in the future.
