1 Samuel 20:12-17

BECOMING FRIENDS

“So Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David…, and Jonathan had David reaffirm his oath of love for him…” 1 Samuel 20:16-17, NIV.

Aristotle said there are three kinds of friendship: Friendship of pleasure – based on pleasure in another’s company, or friendship of utility – based on usefulness in association, or friendship of virtue – based on mutual admiration. The passage shows how David and Jonathan became intimate friends of virtue by exchanging words of trust. Love and trust are inseparable. Jonathan gave his trust to David. He promised David to check out whether his father, Saul, really hated and wanted to kill David and report to him. Jonathan also requested kindness form David after God would have given David victory over his enemies.
God expects everyone to have a covenant relationship with Him and replicate it by relating sincerely with others. God first loved you by giving His Son to die for you. You are expected to reciprocate His love by accepting the offer of His Son. Jonathan saw the kind of relationship David shared with God and wanted the same. Can the same be said of you? As a young person, be careful of entering into a relationship that can lead you to sin against your Creator. Be wary of any friendship that does not exalt God. First, establish a covenant relationship with your Maker and be faithful to Him. This first relationship will regulate your relationship with others without any regret.
