But Amnon had a very crafty friend—his cousin Jonadab. He was the son of David’s brother Shimea. 2 Samuel 13:3 NLT


No normal person exists without a friend, but friends can make or mare a person. Our text reveals this in Absalom’s life.

Beloved, the kind of person you’re is spelt by the kind of friends you have and keep. Good friends enable you accomplish good things which are pleasing to God. Bad, crafty and unfriendly friends propel you to accomplish bad things that leads you away from God, which they may not be able to do themselves and ordinarily you wouldn’t. A friend contributes in no small measure what you’ll do or not do as well as who you’re, therefore great caution must be exercised in choosing them. Crafty friends are everywhere, – marriage, church, school, workplace, family. Any friend not drawing you closer God is a crafty and unfriendly friend and you ought to let go of such, before he ruins your destiny!

Grace upon grace!
