Time to Grow: Kindness and Goodness When No One Notices

Published on 05/16/2010
Though David and Jonathan could have become bitter enemies fighting to gain the kingship of Israel, God instead forged a strong friendship between them. Although kings of his time were known to eradicate all competition, David made a vow with his friend saying that, as king, he would not wipe out Jonathans family. David upheld his vow by blessing Jonathans crippled son, Mephibosheth, providing us with an excellent example of kindness and goodness from which we can make application for our lives today.
