MFM Devotional for 14 September 2022 Wednesday | Outline

Jonathan was the eldest son of King Saul. He was supposed to be the rightful heir to the throne of Israel after the death of his father Saul. But the fact that God brought another man to ascend the throne instead of him was acceptable to him. He was a man of great courage, fidelity and unselfishness. He was a man with heroic faith. Consider his statement in 1 Samuel 14:6.

Jonathan was a faithful and loyal friend to David, his friend. Loyalty is one of life’s most costly qualities found in friends. It is the most selfless part of love. To be loyal is not to love for yourself only but to stand by your commitment and willingness to suffer for it. Jonathan was a shining example of loyalty. Sometimes, he was faced with choosing between his father, Saul, and his friend David, who was a servant to his father.

However, Jonathan allowed truth to guide him. He knew that his father sought to kill David unjustly and he stood by David and helped him to escape from his father. The Bible, which is the word of truth, had nothing negative to say about Jonathan. He was a perfect example of a good and godly friend. Beloved, are you a true friend or a backbiter?

Are you a jealous person or a hypocrite who would laugh before your friend but try to pull him down behind his back? Can the Bible testify about you like Jonathan that you are a courageous, loyal and faithful friend? Jonathan was ready to take a second place without jealousy or envy and still maintain his love and loyalty for David. No wonder when David looked back and remembered the friendship of Jonathan, he wept and made a lamentation recorded in 2 Samuel 1:26.
