Many know of the main stories of David in the Bible. Who could forget about the story of Goliath being defeated, and the story of David dancing undignified before the Ark? Many also know about the stories of David and Saul and the intense persecution that David went through after being anointed to be king. Many know about David and Jonathan, and what true covenant friendship looks like. What surprises me though is the lack of people who know about David and Jonathan’s son, Mephibosheth.
His story is one that holds the power to break shame off of your life and restore honor. Mephibosheth’s story, however, begins in great tragedy.
