2 Samuel 8, 9; Psalm 60
Focus Verse: And David said to him, “Do not fear, for I will show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan, and I will restore to you all the land of Saul your father, and you shall eat at my table always.” – 2 Samuel 9:7
When Jonathan was alive, David promised that he would not stop showing kindness to him or to his family. Long after Jonathan was dead, David kept his promise. He showed kindness to Jonathan’s son, Mephibosheth, and Jonathan’s grandson, Mica. All the days that he was alive, David made sure that Jonathan’s family was taken care of.
When you keep promises that you make, you are reflecting the character of God. God keeps His word. He cannot lie. What He says He will do, He does. What He promises, He fulfills.
When you keep promises that you make, you are also showing that you care for others. Regardless of how inconvenient it may be to you, others will know that you value and respect them when you keep your word to them.
