3. What does Jehovah expect of his friends?
Jehovah loves people in general, “but His close friendship is with the upright.” (Proverbs 3:32) Jehovah expects his friends to try to do things that he views as good and to avoid things that he considers bad. Some may feel that they could never live up to Jehovah’s standards of good and bad. However, Jehovah is large-hearted. He accepts everyone who truly loves Him and does his best to please Him.—Psalm 147:11; Acts 10:34, 35.

We want to love all our brothers. But we may struggle to accept someone who seems different from us. What can help? Read Acts 10:34, 35, and then discuss these questions:
Jehovah accepts as his Witnesses all sorts of people. How should that affect your view of others who come from a background different from yours?

Read 2 Corinthians 6:11-13, and then discuss this question:
