Something to think about
If I had to choose one relatively unknown person from the Bible to have dinner with, it would have to be the young man who was Jonathan's armour bearer.
There can be no denying that Jonathan was a valiant warrior. An honourable man. And a loyal friend.
As for this young man – well the questions just mount up! Why would he follow Jonathan so willingly in taking this incredible risk? They walked right into the camp of their enemies during a war. Somehow the armour bearer was caught up in Jonathan's complete trust in God.
Sometimes the challenge that faces us in the endeavour to end the injustice of poverty can seem insurmountable. Likewise fear about the risks of action (and inaction) can be paralysing. But, let us remember that unlike war, which may or may not be justifiable, the fight against poverty will always be a just cause.
