1 Samuel 20:41-42 (NLT) David and Jonathan, affirming covenant
As soon as the boy was gone, David came out from where he had been hiding near the stone pile. Then David bowed three times to Jonathan with his face to the ground. Both of them were in tears as they embraced each other and said good-bye, especially David.
At last Jonathan said to David, “Go in peace, for we have sworn loyalty to each other in the Lord’s name. The Lord is the witness of a bond between us and our children forever.” Then David left, and Jonathan returned to the town.
Our Father in heaven,
There is such a long history of broken covenant in Mississippi. Broken treaties, broken laws, broken marriages, broken vows, broken families, broken contracts. Lord, have mercy. Help us to build a culture of honor. Amen.
