A Seat at The Table
Now we are about to read the greatest illustration of grace in the entire Old Testament. It revolves around a man with one of the weirdest names you will ever hear, Mephibosheth. To be honest, you either have to be drunk or in a bad mood to name a kid Mephibosheth.
Shepherd, poet, warrior, king. In the Old Testament there are few names that resonate as loudly as David. Called "a man after God's own heart", he became the leader of Israel, and a part of the earthly lineage of Jesus Christ. Yet he also committed great sin. In the life story of David we can learn about about the character of God as He relates to one of His most prominent characters in all the Bible.
