Best Friends

For parents, there comes an age where we can’t always be with our child – school for example. Sometimes friendships can be complicated for such little kids (if you know, you know!). 

This story is a great opening for talking about friendship and what a true friend is. David faced one of his most challenging chapters in his life – a king wanted him dead, he had to flee during the night leaving his wife, had gone in to battle facing death each time, and through all this, he was hiding and homeless, yet his friendship with Jonathan gave Him encouragement and strength. 

Talk to you children about being an encouraging friend. If they see someone who needs help, talk them about showing kindness, and not judging or being mean.
