Is anyone still alive from Saul's family? If so, I want to show God's kindness to them. -- 2 Samuel 9:3.
We are living in a time when there are many who hate the thought of honoring and respecting those who have borne the burden and heat of the day; be it those who are our national, spiritual or educational leaders.
As I reflect, I think of those who were born in our country on the 10th day of July, 1973. Who they are and where they are? Did they benefit from an independent nation? Did they attain academic excellence? Are they housed properly and are they receiving more than minimum wage? Believe it or not, these persons are important to our nation's history and we should know who they are and of their well being.
Then there are those who lack the pride of knowing the history of where we have come from as a people of color. We downplay history, throw away and destroy pertinent and relevant factual happenings that are for the benefit and good of generations following. We substitute selflessness for selfishness, toil for frivolity, achievement for frills and thrills and the heroes for the errors.
When Senator Barak Obama was inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States of America, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin sang the American national anthem. It was a cold day and Aretha was dressed in fine form, but what was outstanding was the grey felt hat she wore. Although the hat was bought from Mr. Song's store in Detroit, and my sister tried on the brown but did not buy it, yet that hat Aretha wore, made in China, is on its way to The Smithsonian Museum. Due respect given. When a people fail to respect that and those to whom respect is due, then that nation is on their way to woe, doom and gloom.
In our lesson text today, no less a person than the king himself is asking if there is anyone alive from the family of Saul, so that he may show kindness to him/her. Even though Saul tried to take his life, David's relationship with Jonathan, Saul's son, was so positive that a call to remembrance would be the reward for some relative yet still alive.
He summoned a man named Ziba, who had been one of Saul's servants. "Are you Ziba? Your servant is he," Ziba replied. The king then asked him, "Is anyone still alive from Saul's family." If so, I want to show God's kindness to them.
Ziba replied, "Yes, one of Jonathan's sons is still alive. He is crippled in both feet. His nurse dropped him when they were fleeing from the enemy."
"Where is he?" the king asked. "In Lodebar at the home of Makir son of Ammiel," Ziba told him.
So David sent for him and brought him from Makir's home. His name was Mephibosheth -- he was Jonathan's son and Saul's grandson. When he came to David, he bowed low to the ground in deep respect. David said, "Greetings, Mephibosheth."
Mephibosheth replied, "I am your servant."
"Don't be afraid!" David said. "I intend to show kindness to you because of my promise to your father, Jonathan. I will give you all the property that once belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will eat here with me at the king's table." Mephibosheth bowed respectfully and exclaimed, "Who is your servant, that you should show such kindness to a dead dog like me?"
Then the king summoned Saul's servant Ziba and said, "I have given your master's grandson everything that belonged to Saul and his family. You and your sons and servants are to farm the land for him to produce food for your master's household. But Mephibosheth, your master's grandson, will eat here at my table."
Ziba replied, "Yes, my lord the king, I am your servant, and I will do all that you have commanded." And from that time on, Mephibosheth ate regularly at David's table, like one of the king's own sons."
What a wonderful story of remembrance and how generosity merits reciprocity. How many of you dear readers have had kindness and extreme favor shown to you and you have yet to bless someone near and dear to that person. Personally I have had numerous people tell me of what a blessing my late father was to them and they in turn would support the ministry that he left. But once out of sight, it is out of mind and the promises are repeated over and over again without delivery.
How many are placed in high positions and have the power to distribute, but never remember the heirs and assigns of Saul, the benefactor. How sad! But don't forget that although you may not acknowledge, God still has Ziba, alive and well, who knows the whole story and will speak the truth and nothing but the truth.
It does not matter your station in life, crippled because of circumstances beyond your control, God would still have someone, able and capable to remember some deed of kindness that was extended to them by your forebears. It should not be that people are denied that which is due to them just because of who their parents are or were. How can you hate Saul's grandson when Saul is responsible for the position that you are holding.
And some there be which have no memorial: Who had perished as though they had never been, And are become as though they had never been born and their children after them. But these were merciful men whose righteousness had not been forgotten; With their seed shall continually remain a good inheritance: And their children are within the covenant. Their seed standeth fast: And their children for their sakes. Their seed shall remain forever: And their glory shall not be blotted out. Their bodies are buried in peace: But their name liveth forever more. The people will tell of their wisdom, and the congregation will show forth their praise." -- Ecclesiasticus 44.
