Notes from the Journey with David – 70

70. I will show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan (2 Samuel 9:7).
Is there a connection between this choice and God’s decision to show Solomon kindness because of his father? Perhaps this effort finds its roots in Near Eastern practice, but I find it significant that David treats Jonathan the same way that God ultimately treats David. Is this an example of how God chooses to bless us according to how we bless others? If so, what an impressive reminder that we do reap what we sow. Mephibosheth will need every ounce of David’s kindness, and Solomon will find a deep grace he doesn’t deserve coming from the God of his father David.
