“Friendship”August 9, 2020
1 Samuel 18:1-4 & selected Proverbs
David and Jonathan had a kindred spirit in God. The friendship these two men had went deep. Chuck Swindoll mentions four qualities that marked their friendship.
- A willingness to sacrifice
- A loyal defense
- An accepting heart
- A consistent encouragement
Merrill Unger gives some background about Jonathan’s gift of friendship:
“Clothing possessed something of the wearer’s personality …. To receive any part of the dress that had been worn by a sovereign or his oldest son and heir was deemed the highest honor that could be conferred on a subject … Jonathan, the king’s son, gave all the material gifts. David, the poor man’s son, gave only his love and respect.”
