Do: Watch the video and pay attention to the differences in Wilson's friends.
Ask: Did you spot the differences? Why did Wilson choose to not allow the first two friends inside his "close friend fence"
Discuss: It's important to remember this isn't about judging people, this is about making decisions for ourselves about who we let inside our "close friends fence." We have the opportunity to be good examples to other people, and some may decide to follow our good example, but others may not. Even if they don't, it doesn't mean we should treat them differently.  But if we we have to act different or do things we wouldn't normally do just to be someone's friend, that isn't a good "close" friendship. Just like this week's verse tells us, if we hang out with people who make good choices, who are wise, we too will become wise. But, if we hang out with those who make bad choices, we will surely find trouble
