Harmony: Together Is Better
Friends keep their promises.
In week 2, we head to 1 Samuel 19–20 and 2 Samuel 9 and take a look at one of the most famous friendships in the entire Bible, between David and Jonathan. Before David escaped to hide from King Saul, he promised Jonathan that he would always take care of Jonathan’s family. David had a chance to follow through on that promise and took care of Jonathan’s son Mephibosheth, making him feel like a part of his family.
Friends keep their promises. Trust is a crucial part of friendship. One of the most important ways we can build trust with our friends is by keeping our word. When we promise to do something, we should do everything we can to keep that promise. We pray that as kids learn about David and Jonathan, they’ll think about the ways they can keep their promises and show others that they can be trusted friends.
