Fostering True Friendships

1 Samuel 18:3-4

Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul. And Jonathan took off the robe that was on him and gave it to David, with his armor, even to his sword and his bow and his belt.

We live in a world driven by technology, which has caused a great deal of people into isolation. Fake undeveloped relationships and online connections abound, however loneliness is now your best friend. You were not created to live this way…

In 1 Samuel 18:3-4, We find a relationship built on biblical principles, the relationship between Jonathan and David. Notice, Jonathan was often the initiator and the one who gave more, he was a prince and David was a lonely Shepherd. Social status shouldn’t interfere with cultivating a true friendship. 

True companionship are cultivated on mutual respect, genuine love and commitment which requires time selflessness and transparency. You must build trust to have genuine relationships, in the end they are worth more than hiding behind a computer.
