It's no fun alone
Today's Scripture: 2 Samuel 9: 1-13
Out of the blues on one particular day, David rose and asked for someone from the family of Saul. He was “hungry” to favor someone from that family, and he could not think of doing anything else. So, Ziba said, “Yes, one of Jonathan’s sons is still alive. He is crippled in both feet.”
The first thing that strikes you is probably Ziba’s response to David. He describes who we come to know as Mephibosheth as the crippled one. Do you see how the first thing to be put forward was Mephibosheth’s imperfections? But that didn’t stop David.
He went on to bless him and honor him. The chapter ends with, “And Mephibosheth, who was crippled in both feet, lived in Jerusalem and ate regularly at the king’s table.” A whole chapter just to tell the story of the one who was remembered by God and found by his destiny helper.
The same applies to us. Our imperfections may be the first thing that the world sees about us, but that will never stop you and I if God has ordained help to come our way.
Prayer Point: Father, connect me to the right people this month and beyond. Let your grace overshadow my imperfections, and help me to find favor wherever I find myself and wherever my name is mentioned in Jesus Name. Amen.
