The Ventriloquist


Influencing Your Friends

Proverbs 12:26

Discussion Starter:
I know what you’re thinking? Where can I get one of those amazing masks? Ebay. You can find anything on Ebay! (OK, we checked. We couldn’t find it on Ebay.)

Our friends put words in our mouths all the time. We know that because we put words in our friends mouths, too. Even if they don’t do it to our faces or on purpose they are talking about us in good and bad ways. We can safely say that the people we are friends with have a powerful influence on not only what we think of ourselves but also what others think of us.

In Proverbs 12, Solomon shares an important insight about friendship. Solomon was a rich, powerful king. You can imagine that there were lots of people who wanted to be his friend. If you were friends with the king you’d likely have special privileges and power in the kingdom. So Solomon knew how important it was to surround himself with friends who liked him for the right reasons. He wrote, “The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.”

In the video, the comedian picked Luke. She chose him carefully so he’d play along with her joke. So too, we need to be careful in how we pick our friends.

3 Questions:

  1. Would you rather be the ventriloquist or just play along like Luke?
  2. When was a time when someone really embarrassed you? How did you react?
  3. How do you pick your friends?

Chew on This:
Can you influence your friends without being influenced by them?
