I Samuel 20:33 And Saul cast a javelin at him to smite him: whereby Jonathan knew that it was determined of his father to slay David.
Jonathan has realized that God has planned to make David king. Jonathan is ok with that. He plans on being David’s second man. That alone is crazy. What a man willing to submit his life to another.
Then Jonathan tries to find out if his dad, Saul, is angry with David. When asked the question and the discussion ends Saul tries to kill his son, Jonathan.
Jonathan’s only worry was that his dad was doing David wrong.
I don’t think I have been that kind of friend and I need to be. The kind of friend that is more worried about the other guy than myself.
Would I risk my life for my friend? Would I take a spear for him? Would my worry be my life or that of my friend?
I am pretty sure that I would fail on this count. I want to learn to be a better friend!
