True Friendship

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 20:1-42; Proverbs 17:17

The scenario in 1 Samuel 20 is a sad one. Saul is a loose cannon and obsessed with killing David, David is now truly on the run for his life and Jonathan and David will never again be able to enjoy face-to-face friend time together. But in the middle of this sad and unfortunate situation, we get the privilege of seeing a beautiful God-centered friendship in action. My heart was moved by the love, care, concern and support each young man had for the other. God didn't create us to do life alone. We all need other people, and we would do well to have such a friendship as the one between these two godly men.

"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity" (Proverbs 17:17).

What's one thing you learned or noticed about friendship from Jonathan and David? What can you do this week to grow and further develop a friendship you currently have? How, and with whom, can you start a new friendship? Tami

Tami, you said it so beautifully!! Sad but we see a God-centered friendship in action!!
Thanks for this wonderful blog!!
Even in an "disagreement" or differing view:
I noticed that both David and Jonathan could talk very openly and honestly about an issue that at first glance,they saw it from different views and they respected each other and went about together to verify it and deal with the results! David's view " your father wants me dead! Jonathan's view " no way,if it were so he would have told me ."

Jesus is my Best Friend!

I need to pray for my life-time friends; I am going to do it right now.
