Proverbs 27v5&6 'Faithful are the wounds of a friend'

This week we're talking about friendship.

Here are some notes for our small groups to respond and apply...

Read Proverbs Chapter 27 v 5-6

What was the big idea drawn out from Sunday?

Read through the following verses:

Proverbs 17v17
Proverbs 18v24
Proverbs 13v20
Proverbs 14v20
Proverbs 19v4
Proverbs 19v6
Proverbs 25v19
Proverbs 25v20
Proverbs 27v9
Proverbs 27v5-6

What picture of friendship do you have from these verses?

In what ways in Jesus our ultimate friend?

Why do you think God wants us to pursue human friendships?
(As opposed to only relating to people who you simply serve.)

These questions may want to be asked in smaller groups as it is quite sensitive.

As a Christian, who do you want to look good in your life? (Who do you want to be glorified?)

What impact does this have on your ability to receive correction/lay down ministries/etc?

Why are wounds from a friend faithful?

How will you cultivate genuine friendships and invite people to correct you?

Pray for genuine friendship and humility!
