After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself. - 1 Samuel 18:1
Dear Heavenly Father,
The friendship you created between David and Jonathon is an example for all of us. They had every reason to let jealousy and disappointment separate them. But instead they loved each other as dear friends. They looked out for each other, listened to one another and helped each other make it through life. Make me be a friend like that so I don't foolishly let my disappointments and desires get in the way of being a friend who can be trusted. Break down whatever selfishness is in the way of loving friendship.
Pastor Don Patterson
We must first learn to be a friend before we demand friendship from others.
