You see them everywhere people gather; we understand their purpose no matter what language we speak. Handicapped parking is a wonderful concept and service to individuals with physical limitations. The handicapped people park in blue marked parking spaces, in front of government buildings, businesses, and stores. These spaces are clearly designated spots for handicapped parking only. It broadens opportunities of accessibility to the handicapped population.
In the days of King David, handicapped individuals had few opportunities. Yet, he saw a need, remembered a promise and honored lame Mephibosheth. ďDavid said, ĎDonít be afraid. Iíll be kind to you because Jonathan was your father. Iím going to give you back the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul. Besides that, you will always eat with me at my table (2 Samuel 9:7 CEV).Ē David, as ruler, provided Mephibosheth handicapped parking at his royal table.
