Saul in his continued jealousy pursues David, but Saul’s son Jonathan has a different heart. Consider:
- Saul’s jealousy – The jealousy that began in chapter 18 reigns throughout our passage today as Saul seeks David’s life. Is there jealousy in your heart? Are you treating someone poorly out of jealousy or envy?
- Jonathan’s loyalty – Saul’s son remains loyal to David in spite of his dad’s jealousy, and in spite of the fact that David’s life will keep Jonathan from ever being king. Jonathan accepts the lot God has given him and loves David as a brother. Are you loyal to your friends? To God’s people? Even to your own hurt? Even when others are against them (and may turn against you)?
