Discussion for 2 Samuel 9

  • Gamaliel
    How did Mephibosheth come to this end even though he was the grandson of the king? Don't allow the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches and the lust of other things keep you from producing the optimum yield available to you. Realize though that even in that case we have a God King who still wants to show His kindness to us from the covenant He made with Abraham. Flow!

    David made a covenant with Jonathan ill remember you, David never forgot that covenant . many times we say we will stand by a friend or brother or sister , yet when it comes time to remember what they have done for us we forget . like Peter at the table with JESUS . but one thing for certain Jesus will never forget , Jesus said ill never leave you , never forsake you.
  • Verlena Seals
    David reminds me of God. God does not forget our labor of love. David didn't forget the kindness that Jonathan showed to him.

    I'm so glad that God knows us by name and not our physical condtions.
