Chapter 6—Sewing One Friend at a Time
Being a friend can make all the difference in the world:
God blessed Jacob and his wife, Rachel, with Joseph when they were really old. Joseph was a talented, noble young man, whose character was one of courage, faith, commitment, and compassion.
Sara recognized that the other girls weren’t real friends and did not have godly characters like Timothy, Benjamin, and Reid demonstrated by sitting with Maria.
Jesus wants us to have godly friends who will help us to be better friends with others. When we make a difference in one friend’s life, we are making a difference in the world, one friend at a time.
