Are You Looking For a Good Friend? Then Be a Good Friend!

There’s no shortage of people looking for a good friend. What’s in short supply are people willing to be a good friend. This Sunday we’re going to see what a great friendship looks like as we explore the commitment David and Jonathan had for one another. Jonathan, especially, demonstrated the unique characteristics of humility and self-sacrifice which enabled David to become king of Israel.

Too often we bring a “I want it my way” attitude towards our friendships. We feel that if our friends don’t do what we want, then they are no longer worthy of being our friends. We’ve lost the understanding that great friendships don’t just happen, they are hard earned over time with lots of commitment, trust and sacrifice.

If you feel like your friends are superficial, that they wouldn’t stand by you if you were in a tough situation, join us this Sunday and learn from the example of Jonathan. If you can be a “Jonathan” to others, there’s no doubt, you will find the kind of friends you’re looking for, people who will be there for you, in good times and bad.
