1 Samuel 17-20

Continuing in 1 Samuel, I read about Saul’s growing hatred of his servant (and the soon-to-be king) David, and of David’s friendship with Jonathan, the son of Saul. I think it’s important to remember that even though David was going to take the crown from Saul, and therefore from Jonathan as well, Jonathan cared more about his friendship with David than his inheritance. Time and time again, Jonathan helps David evade Saul, who was actively trying to kill him. Like I wrote in a letter to A, my Compassion child, today, I pray that I can be that kind of friend.
