Grateful Exchange

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 2 Samuel 19:24-30

When David returns to once again take his place as king, one of the first people he encounters is Saul's grandson and Jonathan's son, Mephibosheth. (As you recall, we read back in 2 Samuel 9 how David took Mephibosheth in, restored his family's land, and basically treated him as one of his own sons after the death of Saul and Jonathan.)

As I took in the exchange between these two men, I was moved by the depth of Mephibosheth's love, as well as his concern, for David. Rather than being pleased with David's dethroning by Absalom (like Mephibosheth's servant Ziba led David to believe), Mephibosheth is devastated by this turn of events. His appearance, actions and words are telling.

How can you be a "Mephibosheth" this week? Who needs to hear how much you love them and how grateful you are for the part they've played in your life? Tami

Tami, What a great challenge! Lord, help me to be a "Mephibosheth" starting this week! What a great way to help me to be grateful towards others.
I want to start with Jesus first,as I aim to be a "Mephibosheth" this week!! He has done so much for me and to be called one of His children is a joy! I am grateful to be a serving the King!

“For his own enrichment this man cared nothing at all. It was everything to him that his king should come into the possession of his kingdom in peace… It is to be feared that too often we are more concerned about our rights than about His. It is a great and glorious thing when our loyalty and love make us far more concerned about the victories of our Lord, than about our own unquestioned rights. Yet that should be the normal attitude of all who sit at the King’s Table.” (Morgan) {Found this quote in a Bible commentaries comments from 2 Sam.19}
