I have a friend that is very mean what should I do?
A: Dear Jasmin,
I know it’s hard when friends are mean. The very first thing we can do is pray for them. Pray that Jesus will help them to realize their meanness. Then talk to your friend, and tell them your concerns. Pray that Jesus will give you the right words and attitude. Then show them the love and kindness of Jesus in the way you treat them, not only when people are nice to us, but especially when they are mean to us or others. Jesus said “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:44). The love of Jesus is the only thing that can melt meanness away!
Thanks for writing, and remember, there's never been a better time to share Jesus!
Your friend, Pastor Howard
