The deep and abiding covenant love that David showed to Mephibosheth is an example for us today. We are to love those who are not necessarily able to do anything for us—the orphan, the widow, and others who may be unable to repay our kindness. If we are not loving such individuals, particularly within the body of Christ, we are not being faithful to the Lord.
God truly loves His people, but there is nothing in us that makes us worthy of such love. He saves us on account of His promises to Christ and His love for Him. What a marvelous blessing! Because He loves us in Christ, we are assured that God will love us forever, never allowing anyone, even ourselves, to take us from His mighty hand. Let us be grateful that redemption, which we do not deserve, is ours truly in Christ.
