David and Jonathan
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

David And Jonathan…


I think of the love that David

and Jonathan shared…

It was for the future King of

Israel that Jonathan cared...


Even though his dad...  Saul…

 Had sought David’s destruction.

Jonathan showed to him

 a brotherly affection.


Though years later, Jonathan had died.

David mourned the loss of his friend and cried.


He sought anyone from Jonathan’s

 household to extend his grace.

He looked high and low.  “All over the place.”


He found his grandson…  Crippled and lame…

He rejoiced and called out his name!


He blessed him with riches,

 honor and favor too…

For this is what God wanted him to do!


How many in church have

 extended a kind act or deed?

In reaching out to those

 who are in need?


Have you taken time to return the

 kindness that Christ has shown?

Through a kind act from your

 heart or your home?


May you take time to bless

 others in Jesus’ name…

Remembering that it was for us all that our savior came!


Like Jonathan…  Jesus is always

 our very best friend...

And HE will be there for us until the very end!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
