Watch the video above and talk about it with your family. Learn more.

Be careful who you put on your friend list because they will rub off on you.

Key Points:

  • Our friends rub off on us. The more you hang out with someone, the more you start acting alike! 
  • We should pick our friends carefully. If we hang out with kids who are mean or dishonest, we might become that way, too.

Memory Verse:

1 Corinthians 15:33 (NIV) Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
