🎧 My Favorite BibleBreakdown Episode This Week>>>
My favorite episode this week: 2 Samuel 9.
📚 All Are Equal At the King’s Table. 💪
(2 Samuel 9:13) And Mephibosheth, who was crippled in both feet, lived in Jerusalem and ate regularly at the king’s table.
Observation: This is one of the greatest stories in 2 Samuel. Mephibosheth was wounded as a child and was no longer able to do what other people could do. However, all those issues were hidden when he was sitting at the King’s table. He was equal with everyone else. This is what God does for us all. We all have various issues from our past that have left their scars. Many of us don’t make it through the world the way others do because of our past issues. However, that doesn’t matter to God. He invites us into His family. When we’re in the kingdom of God, all our issues are covered by the King’s mercy. We stand together with our brothers and sisters as equals in His kingdom.
Application: Rest in knowing God loves you just like everyone else.
Prayer: Thank You, God, for loving us.

How can an omnipotent, loving God preside over a world filled with evil and suffering? The author's approach is concise, systematic, and clearly communicated, just what Geisler fans have grown to expect. In addition to relying on time-tested solutions to the problem of evil, the author also presents a compelling new way to think about this puzzle.
