Mercy displayed

"The Old Testament reading includes the story of Mephibosheth and how David took him into his (David's) house and let him eat at the king's table all of his life.  The New Testament reading includes the story of the Prodigal Son--how a son left his father's house and lived out in the world for several years until bad times came and then returned to his father's house hoping to become a servant but instead being returned to his former state as a son in the house.

"Two stories reached on the same day by reading through the Bible that reveal how we as such vile sinners welcomed into our Father's house and allowed to eat at His table and receive the blessings of His house as adopted sons.
