Perhaps the greatest example of friendship we have in the Bible is David and Jonathan. They made a covenant with one another and throughout their lives protected and loved each other deeply. When Jonathan died, David said “Your love for me was wonderful, more wonderful than that of women.”
They had an intense friendship. An enviable one too. After all, who wouldn’t want a friend that would defend you even in the face of death?
What about you? How important are friendships to you? Would you ever make a covenant like David and Jonathan?
