You have to be a friend to make a friend.So, if you see a person carrying a bunch of books in school, go up and ask if he/she needs a hand. Or, if you are standing in line and someone only has 1 item, let that person go ahead of you. If you see a classmate standing alone, go up and ask him/her something about a school activity. Or just wear a smile on your face, since a smile welcomes conversation.A good personality attracts..Don't work too hard.Just be yourself and be a good listener when in a group..
A a friend is someone who shares your values. The Bible gives a description of a good friend (Proverbs 17:17) As you get older, you need friends who have admirable qualities, live by praiseworthy standards, and have a positive influence on you, remember that not everyone who claims to be a friend has what it takes to live up to the label. (Proverbs 18:24) Have you ever had a “friend” who took advantage of you? Talked behind your back or spread false rumors about you? This can shatter your trust. Always remember that when it comes to friends, quality is more important than quantity. Have friends reflect qualities that are found at Galatians 5:22, 23. If only negative traits come to mind, it might be time to look for better friends. Instead of making friends with just anyone, be able to recognize good qualities and be selective. (1 Corinthians 15:33)
