Scripture Reference: 2 Samuel 9:1-13
In the timetable of the Scriptures, shortly after David receives God’s overwhelming covenant promises, the king looks to display covenant kindness to another person. David makes a man named Mephibosheth the object of his kindness and lavish generosity. The freedom and security that Mephibosheth finds as the recipient of the king’s undeserved favor is a window into the freedom and security we long for found in Jesus Christ.
