WXvPOSITION. - I. Mephibosheth
fi leodebar, I.6. Now tbat David is
securely settled on the throne, he be
glns to titihk of hils dearest friend of
the days of his trial--Jonathan. The
bogse of Saul 7 a whole had been his
biitterest enem ies. but he will show
them kindness for Jonathan's sake.
The %nner is a titter enemy to God
(Ron. 3:7; Jan. 4:4), but God loves
the sinvfnr nnd will search him out
and %how him kindness for Jesus'
sake. The house of Saul had sunken
from its former greatness into such
obscurity that it took some time of
seavr.hing to find one of the house
bold. A former servant of the house
,of San1 was better known than his
chlikren or grandchildren. The kind
nesa that David desired to show to
some of the house of Saul was "the
kindness of God." unmerited kindness
and great kindness. As God had
shown kindness to David. so David
would show kindness to his enemies.
?.enhibosheth is a fitting type of the
-sinner: be was "lame on his feet"'
-and vn is the sinner. unable to walk
tarirgbtly in the paths of righteous
bens, constantly stumbling and fall
ing: and he lived in Lodebar (which
means, "no pasture"), and the sinner
Is without pasture, starving. God has
made the human soul on so large a
plan that nothing can satisfy it but
God 11Umself. We may flatter our
selves that If we have much goods
laid up for many years, our souls can
"take their ease. eat, drink and be
-merry" (Luke 12:19), but the human
-sonl that drinks of any other well
than that to which Jesus invites him
will thirst again (John 4:13). It is
only when he drinks of the water that
..lerus gives that lie never thirsts, but
-whosoever drinks of the water that
Jeansq gives shall never thirst and it
will be in him a well of water spring
Sne ip into everlaiting life (John
4:14). Away from God there is no
pnir,. but when we return to God
and He becomes our Shepherd He
vmake's us to lie down in green pas
tn'ras and leads 'is beside the waters
-of rrst and redemption (Ps. 23:2,
11. V., margin). Our David not
merely sends for us, He comes
for vn (Lu k 19:10), and when
Me finds us He rejoices over us,
lays 1- on Ilis shouildr and brings
us qnecly hon" (Luke 15:;-7). ,I-low
foolish Meuhlhosheth would have
been if when the king sent for him,
Ahe had r-fused in go with the messen
gers, nnd bow foolish the sinner is
when the King of kings sends for him
throngh Ifis messenger, the Holy
Snirit. i: h- refuses to leave the land
-of "no pasture," and the house of
bondage. to go to the King and re
ceive the reward of the faithful.
11. Meiluhiboshieth at the King's
'rahle, .13. When Mephibosheth
camne int.o the presence of the king he
was full of fear ! spite of the pur
poses of love that the king had ex
pressed (v. .3). So t.1e sinner is full
or fear when he draws nigh to God,
though God's purposes, revealed over
and over again, are puruposes of in-.
Enit~e love. To trembling Mephibo
1 sheth David said, "Fear not," and to
the trembling sinner' God says, "Fear
not" (l3.41:10,13; 43:12,5). There
is scarcely anything God says more
frequently in His Word than "Fear
mot." David gave Mephibosheth good
* reason for not fearing, namely, "I will
-surely show thee kindness for Jona
than's, thy father's, sake." God gives
us even better reason for putting
fear from us, because He will show
us kindness for His only begotten
Son's sake (Rom. 8:32; John 14:13,
4;2Cor. 5:21). David not only
promised to restore all the land to
Saul, his father, but furthermore that
Mephibosheth should eat at his own
Codinvte ustodo. No earthly
kings tblewasever so bountifully
sprad s te tbleof the great King
to hic Heinvites erysinner to
sit dwantoetteecontinually.
David's kidasfilled Mephibosheth
j with a sense ofhsonutter un
worthiness (.8). He readdhim
self as only a dead dog. When we
see ourselves in the light of God's in
unite grace, we too wvill see that we
are no better thani dead dogs in our
selves, but by the grace of God we
become children of God (John 1:12).
David sought to relieve Mephibosheth
of all care by laying all responsibility
for looking after his large property
Upon Ziba, the servant. Ziba himself
had fifteen sons and twenty servants,
but he in turn was to be servant to
Mephibosheth. God proviges us with
rnIghtier servants yet, serVantB of no
Iess dignity than the angels (Heh,

There is more batarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put to
gether, and until the last few years was sup
posed to be incurable. For a great many
years doctors pronounced it a local disease
and prescribed local remedies. and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treatment,
pronou-need it incurable. Science has proven
Ctarrh to be a constitutional disease, and
therefore requires constitutional treatment.
