Parents, today your child studied the Bible story about the friendship of David and Jonathan. These two friends truly loved one another, reflecting God’s love for people. Their friendship survived even through hardships. Does your family know God loves them no matter what happens?
Located on the One Conversation™ page, our Daily Bible reading reminds us what prophecy needs to be fulfilled to mark Jesus as the Messiah. Witness after witness can attest that Jesus Christ fulfilled this prophecy and is reigning still today!
This week we read about the friendship between Jonathan and David. “Practicing the Fine Art of Friendship” by Victor M. Parachin helps us understand on a deeper level what our responsibilities are in these kinds of relationships. “Most of us know that friends enrich our lives and keep us grounded. The reality is that friends multiply our joys and divide our griefs. However, in our crowded schedules of tasks and activities, finding the time to sustain old friendships and to cultivate new ones seems more difficult than ever before. Yet, if our lives are to be infused with greater meaning and fulfillment, friendship must be placed near the top of our priorities.“ http://www.lifeway.com/Article/ministry-Practicing-the-Fine-Art-of-Friendship
We do not lack knowledge; in fact, we are overwhelmed with knowledge. We may not have it stored in our heads, but we have easy access with just a click of the mouse. What we lack is understanding of the best way to use that knowledge—and that calls for wisdom.
