Story of David - Day 33

I Samuel 20:1-4 – “And David fled from Naioth in Ramah, and came and said before Jonathan, What have I done? what is mine iniquity? and what is my sin before thy father, that he seeketh my life? 2 And he said unto him, God forbid; thou shalt not die: behold, my father will do nothing either great or small, but that he will shew it me: and why should my father hide this thing from me? it is not so. 3 And David sware moreover, and said, Thy father certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly as the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, there is but a step between me and death. 4 Then said Jonathan unto David, Whatsoever thy soul desireth, I will even do it for thee.”

In I Samuel 20, we continue to witness the depth of friendship between David and Jonathan. When David sought refuge from Saul's wrath, he turned to his dear friend for help. Jonathan's loyalty was unwavering, and he was willing to go to great lengths to protect and support David.

This chapter reminds us of the importance of having dependable friends who stand by us through difficult times. We should strive to be like Jonathan, offering unwavering loyalty and support to our friends when they need it most. Having good friends can provide us with comfort, strength, and love that mirrors God's unfailing love for us.
