Terpsichorean (2 Samuel 6:12-18)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “terpsichorean.” Back in the Old Testament times it was very important for a man to have dignity and respect among his people. As you will see in today's passage, King David did not really think about this when he decided to praise the Lord. As a respectable and important man, probably the most in the entire kingdom, he cared more about what God saw then what other people did.

David, wearing a linen ephod, danced before the Lord with all his might, while he and the entire house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets.
~2 Sam 6:14-15

My question for you today is: as you live each day of your life are you concerned more with what God thinks about you or what others do? I know that I have been guilty of this selfishness in my own life many times over the years. It is important for each of us to make sure that God is always the first and only person that we are to impress. My prayer for you this morning is that you take a page out of King David's book and dance before God in terpsichorean glee before his splendor.

Praying for you,
