“He’ll live,” the vet announced, “but his leg will have to be amputated.” The stray mongrel my friend had brought in had been run over by a car. “Are you the owner?” There would be a hefty surgery bill, and the puppy would need care as it recovered. “I am, now,” my friend replied. Her kindness has given that dog a future in a loving home.

Mephibosheth saw himself as a “dead dog,” unworthy of favor (2 Samuel 9:8). Being crippled in both feet due to an accident, he was dependent on others to protect and provide for him (see 2 Samuel 4:4). Furthermore, after the death of his grandfather, King Saul, he probably feared that David, the new king, would order all enemies and rivals to the throne killed, as was the common practice of the time.

Yet, out of love for his friend Jonathan, David ensured that Jonathan’s son Mephibosheth would always be safe and cared for as his own son (v. 7). In the same way, we who were once God’s enemies, marked for death, have been saved by Jesus and given a place with Him in heaven forever. That’s what it means to eat at the banquet in the kingdom of God that Luke describes in his gospel (Luke 14:15). Here we are—the sons and daughters of a King! What extravagant, undeserved kindness we’ve received! Let’s therefore draw near to God in gratitude and joy. Karen Kwek

Hey there, welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread reading titled at the Kings table was written by Karen click Hill live event announced, but his leg will have to be amputated. The stray mongrel. My friend had brought in had been run over by a car. Are you the owner there would be a hefty surgery bill and the puppy would need care as it recovered. I am now. My friend replied her kindness has given that dog a future in a loving home with Eva Sheth and second Samuel saw himself as a dead dog unworthy a favor being lame in both feet due to an accident. He was dependent on others to protect and provide for him. Furthermore, after the death of his grandfather King Saul.

He probably feared that David the new king would order all enemies and rivals to the throne killed, as was the common practice of the time. Yet, out of love for his friend Jonathan David ensured that Jonathan son with the Sheth would always be safe and cared for as his own son in the same way we who were once God's enemies marked for death have been saved by Jesus and given a place with him in heaven forever. That's what it means to eat at the banquet in the kingdom of God. That Luke describes in his gospel. Here we are the sons and daughters of the King, what extravagant undeserved kindness. We've received let's draw near to God in gratitude and joy. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from second Samuel chapter 9 verses six through 13 when Lefevre Sheth, son of Jonathan, the son of Saul came to David, he bowed down to pay him honor. David said Lefevre Sheth at your service. He replied 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 belong to your grandfather Saul and you will always eat at my table. Lefevre Sheth bowed down and said what is your servant you should notice a dead dog like me. Then the king summons Eva Saul Stewart and said to him, I have given your master's grandson.

Everything that belong to Saul and his family.

You and your sons and your servants are to farm the land for him, and bring in the crops so that your master's grandson may be provided for in Lefevre Sheth, grandson of your master will always eat at my table. Now zebra had 15 sons and 20 servants then zebra said to the king, your servant will do whatever my lord the king commands his servant to do some Lefevre Sheth ate at David's table like one of the king's sons Lefevre Sheth at a young son named Micah and all the members of zebra's household were servants of Lefevre Sheth and Lefevre Sheth lived in Jerusalem because he always ate at the Kings table. He was lame in both feet. Dear Jesus, thank you for saving us and giving us a place at your table forever remind us that we are your dear children and help us to always praise and trust you. It's in Jesus name we pray.

Amen.
