1 Samuel 18:1-5; 19:1-7

COVENANT BETWEEN TWO FRIENDS

“And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself” 1 Samuel 18:3, NIV.

When two persons give their words to become friends, the agreement is binding. The scripture for today started with Jonathan’s spirit becoming one with David. David became Jonathan’s favourite and Jonathan made a covenant with him. To express his love physically Jonathan gave David his robe, tunic, sword, bow and belt. Also, Saul gave David a high rank in the army because he won all the battles assigned to him. But later, Saul wanted to kill David (19:1). Because Jonathan loved David as himself, he exposed his father’s evil intention and warned him to be on guard. Jonathan later pleaded on behalf of David that he should not be killed, and Saul granted his son’s request.
What attributes of a true friend can you see in the story? A true friend’s spirit becomes one with his friend; a true friend loves as himself; a true friend is loyal to his friend; a true friend gives without reservation; a true friend speaks well of and pleads for his friend; and also risks his life for his friend. Are you a true friend to others and have you found a true friend? You have to be a good friend to find true friends. Someone said, “I went out to find a friend, but I could not find one there; I went out to be a friend and friends were everywhere!” Decide today to be a true friend to someone.
