2 Samuel 6:14 - David Dancing before the Lord

I was just thinking about what it’s really like to worship God today. At church recently, we’ve been going through a series entitled, “Worship is…” Today it was about worship being lifestyle.

I began to start thinking about what it would really be like if worship was our lifestyle. InΒ 2 Samuel 6, we read of King David dancing before the Lord, undignified by his worship.

He loved God so much that he wanted to express his love for God through dance. He was so joyful in the Lord and what God had done for him that he couldn’t contain himself. So he danced and sang.

The thing is, his wife Michal ‘despised him in her heart’ because of his worshipping (Verse 16). She didn’t understand (or maybe even want to) but David danced whatever.

There is such a lesson to be learnt in this:

  1. We should be worshipping God always!
  2. We shouldn’t care what others think: we should worship to the point of being undignified.
  3. We should always worship being thankful of what God has done in our lives.

And I’m going to try and start that today! And you can too πŸ™‚ – it’s biblical!

And to end, here’s a song that will get you going πŸ˜›
