David and Jonathan: God gives us friends

Thoughts

David and Jonathon were really good friends and God looked after David through his friendship with Jonathan. When David was in danger Jonathan warned him and was able to help him to escape. I wonder what God might be asking us to do for our friends? Hopefully they aren’t in danger like David was…but I wonder if we might need to stick up for them if someone says mean things or play with them if they are on their own in the playground?

Prayer

Dear God, Thank you that you looked after David through his friend Jonathan. Thank you for our friends who look after us and make us feel happy. Please help us to be good friends to the other children we know and help us to be kind and brave if we need to be. Amen.
