Tonight we talked about king david and mephibosheth. How david extended his kindness to mephibosheth in completing his promise to his good friend jonathan. We talked about how mephibosheth was lame in both his feet and how david had him eat at the king's table as one of his sons, gave him the land that ziba tended with his sons and servants.
Mephibosheth being quite stunned at this wondered how in the world could a king like david come to him and openly give him all of these things when he was considered nothing but a "dead dog" which was good fer nothing.
This picture of david's kindness is just how Jesus carries us to his table to eat with him and become one of his children. Although some of us may not be lame physically we are lame spiritually, sin hinders us from approaching the throne of God. We can try all with all our might to get us there but having the disability of being crippled will sadly get us no where. After a while we may even get frustrated trying to do everything on our own and become overwhelmed. Some of you may know someone who is at that point, if you see their need, step out and help them. We shouldn't pick and choose who is more worthy than another to receive a good deed from us out of the same kindness Jesus has given us.
