When David fought with the household of Saul in order to secure the throne of Israel nearly all of Saul's household was killed. But, David had made a promise to Jonathon, Saul's son, that he would treat his household well. Mephibosheth, a lame man, was all that was left of Saul's household. So David called Mephibosheth to be a part of his household and eat at his table.
So it is with us: We are of the household that was at war with the rightful King of the Universe. But God spares some for the sake of Jesus Christ.
