This section of Right Relations is taking a lot of thought and work and though I am not ready to share what I have so far I did want to share this and hear from you.
Right Relations / The Friends list
Friends in the Bible list
When I think of some of the friendships in the Bible the one that comes immediately to my mind is the relationship between Jonathan and David. Jonathan was the son of King Saul, and David was a shepherd boy and the youngest of his father’s sons. So how they became friends is one God had chosen. So how many friendships can you think of found in the Bible? Here is a short list of ones that I can think of. I would love to hear from you about ones that are not listed here or of ones that inspire you.
- David and Jonathan / 1 Samuel 18-20
- Elijah and Elisha
- Ruth and Naomi
- Jesus and His disciples
- Paul and Timothy
- Job and his friends
- Jesus and Judas (not all friends are friends, some will betray you the second it profits them)
I know there are other friends found in the Bible and that we all have those friends who have had an impact on our relationship with Jesus. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Please share your friendship testimonies and your favorite friends in the Bible.
