Re:Verse reading— 1 Samuel 20:1-17, 30-42 (day one)
“Then David said to Jonathan, ‘Who will tell me if your father answers harshly?’ ” v 10
When you need information, to whom do you turn? Google? The Weather Channel? Your Mom? Recently, I’ve seen a new pattern. “Facebook friends, does anyone know a good _____ that you can recommend?”
When David needed insider information, the only person He could turn to was his friend, Jonathan. (Was the King’s rage a function of his mental/spiritual instability? Was it something David have done? Was he charged with a crime? ) Only Jonathan could learn the truth and only Jonathan would risk communicating with a wanted man.
Jesus is our Jonathan. Our Friend. Our Messenger from Heaven. The One Person who will communicate with us the truth about the King’s attitude toward us.
