"So Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem: for he did eat continually at the kingís table; and was lame on both his feet".
2 Samuel 9:13
What grace! Mephibosheth was invited to sit at the royal table as the kingís son. He was Saulís grandson and Davidís enemy. He was an invalid with no potential for useful service. Yet seated at the table, his handicap was concealed, and the king could see his face, which reminded him of his dear friend, Jonathan. David showed kindness to Mephibosheth for Jonathan his fathersí sake. God has shown kindness to us for His Son, Jesusí sake. Our Saviour has removed the enmity and infirmity so there is no longer a barrier to son-ship or feasting at the royal banquet. What a Saviour! óMilton Haack
Clothed in garments of salvation, at Thy table is our place;
We rejoice and Thou rejoicest, In the riches of Thy grace. óJames G. Deck
