Support System

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: 2 Samuel 15:13-37; Proverbs 17:17

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

David was a good and godly man and a servant-minded leader. He valued and respected people. He was caring and compassionate, and as a result, he had many loyal and committed friends. So when things turn ugly with Absalom and David is forced to leave Jerusalem for his safety, the masses are grieved and several men whom David has treated with respect, kindness and love come forward to offer moral support and help him however they can. What a needed breath of fresh air, encouragement and boost those friends provided in this extremely challenging and dangerous situation.

What does this passage convey about the value and importance of strong friendships? Who is (or has been) your support system when you encounter hardship or trials? Would you say that you're a supportive friend? Tami
