Prince TOPIC- Tbe Cost ol Being a Friend. Without question, the most precious possession any man or woman has (apart from his fellowship with S£l if he is a Christian, and the love of his own family) is friend- 35. the flower that btoomi b7 the side of the nigged pathway of life. Like many flowers, some friendships need to be cultivated By ED WHEELAN ·^·^M..B TIMER ° S^e the condemned elephant anothej 1 Ban**- e '' ?t!I 8Wner - MEANWHIlE, THE RINGMASTER HAt SOU6HT OUT "speEt- JACKSON - AH'M _ BUT MISTAH'SILK DOME 5 AV MO VsfATAH TO' VO' " _ SURE SHE'LL BE ALL RIGHT.'UNCLE 3EPF"-- I'LL.

OR VOU'LL E LOOKING TOR A NEW JOB TOMORROW tPHELANT AM THIRSTY " that the love of - a woman for another woman is a beautifuT thing, the love of a man for a woman an even more : devo ed and precious thing, but that the bond of love between man and man surpasses all in its strength and glory. Some might question such a statement, and yet it is true that between man and man tnere is the possibility of the highest type of friendship. David and Jonathan etand at the head of an inspiring list of men who loved each other with their whole souls. The lesson for today calls for a careful reading of the incidents in the life of Jonathan and David recorded in I Samuel, chapters 14, 18, 19, and 20, as well as the first chapter of II Samuel. It is a story which will richly reward a careful reading. Considering the printed portion in the light of this background we note six things that characterized this, great friendship. I. Cultivated (v. 4). Friendships must be "kept in repair." Foolish and almost wicked is that man who by boorishly offending his fellowmen, or by neglecting the thoughtful words and acts that cultivate friendship, drives men away from him. "He that hath friends must show himself friendly" (Prov. 18:24). Consider the admonition of our Lord in Luke 16:8, 9, where he urges the righteous use of even our worldiy possessions to cultivate eternal friendships. Read what Jonathan did in I Sam. 18:3-5, only one of his many loving · and thoughtful acts. n. Courteous (v. 8). David asked that Jonathan deal kindly jvith him, and the entire story reveals that he did just that, always. More friendships are wrecked on the rocks of little discourtesies than in almost any other way. We live in an age which affects an outward veneer of culture but which is at heart often thoughtless and unkind. Let Christian men and women be courteous. They should be as followers of the gentle Jesus, and it will bring them countless friends. HI. Candid (v. 9). Friendships that last must be built on absolute candor, not the kind that delights in telling an unpleasant truth, but one which speaks the truth in love. Jonathan told David the truth. IV. Courageous (w. 12, 13). Jonathan was such a faithful son that when the time of parting came he stayed with his wicked father rather than go with David, whom he loved. But he was true to David even though he knew it would incur the wrath of his father if that friend- chip became known. Things that cost us nothing are usually "worth it." Real friendship calls for sacrifice, standing by in the night hours, sharing burdens, loyal even though others may condemn us for it. V. Covenant Keeping (w. 16, 17). Covenants entered into by solemn treaties in our time are soon discarded as "scraps of paper." People make promises to one another that they never intend to fulfill. Jonathan and David made a covenant and kept it. True friends do not violate their loving agreements. This matter of trickery and falsehood in life and business is one that deeply troubles the writer of these notes. He sees unmistakable evidence that this perverse spirit has come into the precincts of the church itself. We should have a revival of honesty in office, home, state, and church. VI. Complete (v. 17). "He loved him as he loved his own soul" -- such a friend was Jonathan. His devotion to David had no qualifying "strings" on it. He was not seeking something for himself. The closest he came to that was to bring his children into the covenant with David (v. 15), and who could question the propriety of euch devotion between true friends? He saw that David was to supplant Saul as king, and in the face of his own interest as Saul's son, he put David forward. Friendship is akin to our relationship to God in that it calls for a complete giving of ourselves, if we are to be true friends. This does not mean that individuality is lost, os special interests and abilities destroyed, but it does mean a whole- souled desire for our friend's welfare, and a complete devotion of our all to his good.
