Lesson Objective: I can understand whether it is difficult to show friendship.


I would like you to think about the lesson objective and what the words highlighted in bold mean?


Difficult means ______________________________________________

Friendship is ___________________________________________


Difficult means finding something tricky. It is not an easy task/thing to do.

Friendship means different things to different people. Friendship is defined in the dictionary as a relationship between people built on trust and support.


Warm up: Can you create a mindmap about what friendship means to you?


Christians believe that Jesus is a good friend to them, but how did Jesus show this friendship and was it always easy?

Let’s now listen to these Bible stories about friendship. After each story I would like you to think about the following question: Was it always easy for Jesus to show friendship? Why? Why not?

  • Story of Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-9): Jesus showing friendship to someone who was isolated and unpopular.

Christians believe Jesus taught them they must always try to show friendship even when it is difficult, as that is what God wants them to do.

Main task: I would like you to write a sentence with your own thoughts on the following question:

When might Christians today find it difficult to show friendship and how would they ask God to help them?


I look forward to hearing your ideas.
