Having close friends is important. Friends can be a blessing to our marriages, too.

“I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; very pleasant have you been to me; your love to me was extraordinary.” 2 Samuel 1:26

    Who are your closest friends?
    How might friendships enhance our marriage?
    What areas in our life hold opportunities for building relationships with other people?

In 2 Samuel 1:26, David had just learned about the death of his best friend, Jonathan. Their relationship was no ordinary friendship, but more like family. Having close friends — people we know we can count on — is important. Friends can be a blessing to our marriages, too. They can encourage us to love our spouse well, hold us accountable when we fall short, and support our marriages when we feel like giving up. We can also do the same for them.
