Who are your best friends? I like to think of my friends as My People – the ones who know me best and hang in there with me through thick and thin. They show up for me and I show up for them.
Friendships are some of God’s greatest gifts. But even solid friendships can hit a bump in the road every now and then.
I’m Sticking With You, written by Smriti Prasadam-Halls and illustrated by Steve Small, is a sweet, funny story about friendship and realizing you might miss what you had once it’s gone.
Bear and Squirrel are the best of buddies. No matter the situation or mood, Bear wants to be with Squirrel all the time. He doesn’t care if Squirrel is grumpy or mad, happy or silly, Bear’s sticking with him for the long haul.
Through a series of wacky mishaps, Squirrel becomes annoyed with Bear and finds himself believing he’d be better off without him. So he lets Bear know that he needs to be on his own. And Bear, surprised and full of hurt feelings, leaves.
But it doesn’t take long before Squirrel realizes he misses Bear and he sets off to make things right again.
- Who are your best friends? What do you like about them? What do you think they like about you?
- Has anyone ever hurt your feelings? Were you able to forgive them?
- Have you ever hurt a friend’s feelings? Were you able to apologize? What do you think a good apology sounds like?
- We have a friend who will never leave us no matter how grumpy, irritated or silly we get. God is that friend. And the great thing about God is he is always the same. He’s always near, always loves you, and is always your friend.
