Important Stuff I’ve Learned from Friends

Elizabeth Campbell

  1. We need to take time for God, who is powerful and holy.
  2. People change, but we don’t have to fear change or let it ruin friendship.
  3. We never fail if we try. Human beings are not perfect. We can leave perfection to the Lord.
  4. Friendship is not to be taken lightly. It is an important relationship.
  5. We should express ourselves rather than keep emotions bottled up inside us.
  6. We can talk to our friends and offer mutual support.
  7. Worrying is a waste.
  8. We all have a special niche in life.
  9. Laughter is great medicine.
  10. What truly matters is on the inside. (Read 1 Peter 3:3-4.)


1 John 4:7-12 tells us that friends are gifts of God.
