Thanksgiving Friend

It’s Thanksgiving week! Yay! I love this holiday! How about you? It’s mostly getting together with my family that I enjoy so much! But, I know that some folks don’t have family nearby, or they don’t have family with whom they can get together this year.  That’s sad! When that happens, I have heard of friends getting together for Friendsgiving instead of Thanksgiving! Have you heard of that?

If you could invite anybody to dinner who would you invite? I’m sure you have a lot of friends, but you probably have a best friend. This person is someone who you love to be around, someone who likes the same games, shows and movies like you do. What are some qualities of a best friend that you appreciate? Loyalty? Happiness? A loving spirit? Forgiving? Interestingly enough, all of those adjectives describe someone else in our lives who should be the most important friend of all: Jesus!

Here’s how the Bible describes Jesus as a best friend in scripture:

Bible Gateway passage: John 15:13 – New International Version

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

I know you all have great best friends, but I’m sure that none of them have ever laid down their life for you like Jesus did. We know that we can always trust and count on Him because He is God’s Son. This year, whether you’re celebrating Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, or just having a normal day at home with your family, remember to thank God for His son Jesus Christ, the best friend anyone could ever ask for! Check out this song about just that!

For a fun craft, have your friends send you pictures of how they are spending their Thanksgiving break. Make a collage of their pictures and hang it in your room.  Don’t forget to put Jesus’ picture right in the middle!

Have a great, safe Thanksgiving!
