- DO: Have the children glue “Mephibosheth” to the King David at the Table” page. Have the children draw food on the table.
- SAY: “Come sit at the table with me. In our story, King David invited someone to his table, too. On your paper, there’s a king sitting at a table. Who is that king? (Pause.) That’s right! It’s King David, and he invited a man named Mephibosheth to join him at his table. Glue the picture of Mephibosheth to the table. (Pause.) Now fill the king’s table by drawing the different food they would eat. (Pause.) Great job! In our Bible story, we heard about some best friends named David and Jonathan. The friends had to say goodbye, but before they did, David promised Jonathan that he would always take care of his family. Later, David became the king, and he remembered his promise. He sent people to find Jonathan’s family. They found Jonathan’s son, Mephibosheth! He couldn’t walk and needed someone to help him. David gave him land, a place to live, people to take care of him, and he always had a place at the table. David did a very big thing and took care of Mephibosheth. God made us to do very big things and help people, too. Who made you to do big things? [Bottom Line] God made me to do big things.”
