Notes from the Journey with David – 69

69. Is there anyone left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness (2 Samuel 9:1).
After having solidified the kingdom under his rule, David now turns to an emotional debt he feels he still owes. He wishes to honor Jonathan, one who trusted him and supported him when others didn’t. David has heard God promise to bless his own son’s rule because of David’s faithfulness. Now David wishes to do the same for one who has been faithful to him. It’s easy to move forward so fast that we forget the kindnesses we might extend to those who have walked with us in earlier days. David is determined to honor Jonathan’s name, though the latter has been dead for years. Such a spirit directly connects him to the heart of the God who has blessed him.
