Key Verse

“And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David, and his garments, even to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle.” 1 Samuel 18:4

Text — 1 Samuel 18:1-5


This verse shows us the love and friendship that existed between Jonathan and David. Jonathan loved David very much. Love is an action word and one action of love is giving. From our key verse, we learnt that Jonathan gave David his garment, sword, bow and girdle. God loves us and gave us Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Angels and so many other spiritual blessings.

What have you given to the person you love? If you love God, have you given Him your life, your time, your talent and your resources? You must determine to give up many things for the sake of Christ. It is also required that you show love and kindness to your parents, siblings, friends and neighbours. Your obedience and prayer for your parents is an act of giving in love. Share what you have with your brothers and sisters and do not cheat them. Pray for your neighbours and be concerned about the welfare of other people.
