The naked dance

II Samuel 6:20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself!

So many times people like to refer to when David danced naked before the Lord but that is not truly the story. His wife said that he had shamelessly uncovered himself. Actually what is happening is that David is showing his emotions, his love for the Lord very openly.

People are not seeing him with the decorum that a king should maintain. That is the complaint that David is publicly showing his love for the Lord with all his heart.

I think that too often we contain ourselves too much. I am very guilty. We are timid when it comes time to give a word of testimony! We sing sort of hesitantly. We don’t want to show our emotions towards the Lord.

It is God who has made us. It is God who deserves our love and worship from the bottom of our hearts.
