    This chapter is 1 that does touch my heart,for David to still remember Johnathan even though he isn't physically present,he continued loving Johnathan beyond the grave through his son,the pact went deeper then just David and Johnathan,he loved him as he did himself,there4 I believe his family was like David's family,he tried to love them and honor what Johnathan did for him even after all Saul did
  • Gamaliel
    One of my fave passages in The Word. It shows the heart of the king towards His Covenant!
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    This is a classic case of promise fulfilled and "the evil that men do lives after them; the good oft interred with their bones". David and Jonathan had a pact to be like brothers. David was true to this pact and showed kindness to Jonathan's lame son. The good that Jonathan did in not allowing Saul to take the life of David is now paying off.
  • 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!
