John the Baptist gives us a great example of how to be a friend. Many times, when someone new comes along people get scared their friends will like the new person better. This happens to kids and adults. Bullying often stems from the fear that someone else will steal friends away. A bully sees the only line of defense as making fun of the new kid. They hope by ruining their reputation their friends won’t want to be friends with the new person, and the bully can keep all their friends to themselves.
