While some are like bad potatoes. Smooth skin on the outside but is heart as black as charcoal.
Everyone need a friends or two no matter how independent they are. Even Jesus needs friends.
The 4th Chapter of Enid Blyton's Bedtime Stories and Prayer is about Jesus And His Twelve Friends.
Guess everybody knew that Jesus was born in Bethlehem ya? Well, he found his calling and he wanted to go out to the country side to tell people to be good and kind. He also wants to help and heal the sick.
In order to help him to do good works, he have to have friends. And off he went.
He went down to Lake of Galilee. He saw two fishermen busy in their boat and call out to them "Come With Me!"
The two men were brothers, Simon and Andrew, looked up. They knew they must go with Jesus, whose face is noble and strong. They pulled up their net and asked "what do you want us to do? We will do all you ask".
Further away there were two brothers, James and John with their father in another boat. Jesus called out to them and they followed him. After that he chose eight more but he love and trust these four the best.
Among the four, was the brave, kind and lovable Simon. People said he could not always be trusted. But Jesus knew better.
He gave him a new name, Peter. Simon asked why. Jesus explained Peter means Rock. He wants someone who is as steady as a rock for he is going to build a great Kingdom of Love, and it must be built on rock so that it will always stand.
Thus Jesus and his twelve friends went out to the country talk to people and heal them when they are sick.
