Grace

Mephibosheth & David
 

"  Don't be afraid, "David said to him, "for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table."

Overview

It is important to understand that just prior to the interaction between David and Mephibosheth, Saul had died and David has been crowned King of Israel. Saul had been unkind to David (trying to kill him) and this was because God had rejected Saul as King and anointed David to be the new king, but before he was king, Jonathan (Saul's son) had been a loyal friend of David, (despite his fathers plans). So we join this story with David appointed King, and wanted to find a way to be kind to any descendant of Jonathan's family that could be found. David, the new King, bestows kindness on someone who didn't deserve it, who society would shun. That man was Mephibosheth, a person who was crippled in both feet.
