King David showed tremendous kindness and hospitality to Saul's grandson Mephibosheth, who was crippled in both legs. Mephibosheth was also his best friend Jonathan's son.
David demonstrated God's love in 3 ways:
1. Love that extends to even a friend of a friend (Jonathan), for the sake of that friend (v.1)
2. Kindness that brings extravagant generosity (v.7)
3.Restores and Gives a new identity, in the King's family = Eat at the table like a son (v. 11).
How do you respond to God's invitation to come to his table?
Are you grateful for God's love that he considers you his son or daughter?
Who can you show kindness to as a friend of a friend, for the sake of Jesus?
