Part of being a good friend is being a good listener. It is more than just hearing words spoken, but listening for heart expressed. Sometimes people do not need advice, only a shoulder to lean on and the kindness of a gentle ear followed by tight lips. Jonathan was such a friend to David. The Bible says his soul was knit to David's soul and loved him as his own soul. Reading this passage in 1 Samuel 18 would make anyone desire to HAVE a friend like Jonathan. Let me challenge us all today to BE a friend like Jonathan. I know I desire to be a friend as he. What a gorgeous example of how the Body of Christ should be.
