Attached is a Self-Evaluation Inventory. It comes from Friends and Friendship: The Secret of Drawing Close (NavPress, 1982) by Jerry and Mary White. Please feel free to download and use – especially during our summer sermon series on Christian Friendship. – P Tim
When you want to drive to a certain city, you first must establish where you are before you can determine how you’re going to get to your destination. As you seek to improve your friendship-making ability and depth, you need to know something of what you are like now as a friend and what you should work on to improve your ability to make and keep friends. This self-evaluation inventory will help you discover where your personal strengths and weaknesses lie.
As you answer the questions [on the attached inventory] be as honest and realistic with yourself as you can. Don’t search for the “right” answers, but for those that most accurately fit you and your personal experience.
