Looking for Good in Others
Featured Topic #46: Looking for Good in Others.
The relationship of David and Jonathan in the Old Testament (I Samuel 18:1-4) is a picture of genuine friendship, with mutual sharing and support. A key New Church teaching about friendship is that we should look for good qualities in other people and support those qualities. For it is the good in a person that we should love.
