A reminder for today
And Jonathan made a solemn pact with David, because he loved him as he loved himself. Jonathan sealed the pact by taking off his robe and giving it to David, together with his tunic, sword, bow, and belt. (1 Samuel 18:3-4)
The friendship between Jonathan and David is quite a rare example of true friendship. I love this part: “Because he loved him as he loved himself.” Friendship is like a rare stone and we must take really good care of it and keep it close to our hearts. Friends are a gift from God and a true friend that loves you is not only a gift but also an important part of our successes each day.
How are your friendships? I feel that today we should really appreciate our good friends and make a note of telling them how important they are in our lives. Friends are there to listen, to help, to share, to feel, to carry, to build, to walk, to smile, to need, to hope, to cry, to hold, to stand and most of all – to laugh and love.
You are my dear friend, and you are so important, not only to me, but also to God and so many others. Do not allow the enemy to steal your happiness in friendship, but let our friendship blossom in God’s love and in God’s grace as we share this gift.
You are deep in my heart my dear friend and I appreciate your friendship so much.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
