A cup of kindness…. for Auld Lang Sine

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: 2 Samuel 9

Key Verse: 2 Samuel 9:12-13
12 Mephibosheth had a young son named Mika, and all the members of Ziba’s household were servants of Mephibosheth. 13 And Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, because he always ate at the king’s table; he was lame in both feet.

After King Saul and Prince Jonathan died in battle, David becomes King first of a few tribes the all Israel. After becoming established in Jerusalem, David is concerned if there is anyone left of Saul’s family who he might show kindness to for Jonathan’s sake.
Mephibosheth is welcome into the court of King David and taken care of, even though in his own eyes Mephibosheth described himself as a “dead dog”. David knew God’s unfailing loving kindness, so now he expresses the same to Mephibosheth.
By the end Mephibosheth disability is not his primary descriptive, but father, rich and sitting at the kings table. In like manner, Christians are first and foremost Children of The King.
