DAY 3 OF WEEK 4
1 Samuel 20:42; John 15:13
Be a Man in Community
Jonathan and David are considered one of the strongest friendships in the Bible. In fact, their friendship changed the course of history – Jonathan helped to comfort David in spite of his difficult circumstances, and David would grow to be one of Israel’s best kings, a ‘man after God’s own heart.’
In fact, Christ's own genealogy would be founded in David. Here we even see them talking about their children being friends for generations – our friendships, if we commit time and effort to them, can change the world for generations to come. We just need to have a longer perspective instead of focusing on the ‘inconvenience’ it seems to be to go out of our way to continue friendships.
- Take time to discuss this devotional with your closest friends – take time to dream with them and God concerning the future of your family, friends, and the legacy you could leave behind.
