Mercy for roadkill
“What is your servant, that you should look upon such a dead dog as I?”
When our dogs die, we cry. When these dogs died, people laughed. Dogs were pests not pets. They were vermin. The only good dog was a dead dog. And that’s what Mephibosheth felt like – a splattered, stinking, dog corpse that people shuddered to look at.
Yet the king not only looked at him, but scraped him off the ground, cared for him, clothed him, fed him, and sat him at the royal table continuously.
From roadkill to a royal son. What mercy?
I wonder if Mephibosheth kept the chain of grace going?
Read about this chain of grace and determine that you will not be the failing link.
