Build Bridges

“One day David asked, ‘Is anyone in Saul’s family still alive—anyone to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?’” ~ 2 Samuel 9:1

Because David and Jonathan had such a close brotherly bond, after he died, David wanted to show kindness to anyone that was still alive in his family. Are we building relationships like this for our future descendants? Or even just our children? Or do we allow ourselves to lose sight of the future and burn bridges? Imagine if Jonathan had taken his father’s side and tried to kill David, would David had helped anyone in his family? Probably not, why? Because he only did that because of his relationship with Jonathan.

If we build lasting relationships, we will be able to help people we care about, even if we’re not here to do it ourselves. Even though it’s easier to think of today, think of tomorrow. You may not need that person now, but what if you do in the future? What if your family does in the future?

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Build Bridges.
