1 Samuel Bible

A Best Friend Helps Us

Today we continue our study of the life of David as a following servant and how we can implement that into our own lives.

The topic for our study today is that A Best Friend Helps Us. In 1 Samuel we get to see how the friendship between Saul’s son Jonathan is a great help to David’s mental and physical survival.

As leaders we are often tempted to be like a lone soldier who does not need anyone. A man or woman who is a John Wayne or Clint Eastwood, but as leaders it is ok to have friends who help us and who are there for us when we need them. In fact, as a leader those friends who can help us are vital for our success in being a leader long-term. If you have been a leader for any length of time I am sure you know that friends can be a great help (if you have a story of how a friend has been a great help, feel free to share it in the comments section below).
