Jonathan loved David with a loyalty and devotion indicative of covenantal love. This is an honorable relationship between two people that Jonathan further proves by willingly and subserviently relinquishing his royal outer garments and instruments. Jonathan quickly discerned that David was God’s anointed and honored him accordingly. He relinquished his position of power to build another up. We do the same when we selflessly serve one another in Christian love.
