Jonathan's Loyalty

Scripture: 1 Samuel 20:1-42

Topics: Friendship, Humility, Loyalty

In 1 Samuel 20, Jonathan’s loyalty to God and humble submission to what he is doing in David’s life is the undertone for everything that takes place. While Saul arrogantly holds onto his kingship, Jonathan gives away his right to the throne because he sees what God is doing, and he places himself underneath God’s authority. In Jonathan, we see a loyal servant of God; in Saul, we see an arrogant fool.
