    Fighting Isn’t OK

    One day a couple of my friends were fighting about a girl in my grade. They wanted her to like them.

    I told them, “Enough, enough!” and pushed them apart. I didn’t want them to hurt each other or stop being friends.

    I wasn’t afraid I’d get hurt, but when I separated them, they got mad. “What are you doing in the middle of this?” they asked. I told them to chill out because I wanted them to be friends and Jesus wants us to be kind to each other.

    They made up and stopped fighting over the girl.
