Become Even More Undignified Than This

20 When David returned home to bless his household, Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet him and said, “How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, going around half-naked in full view of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!”

21 David said to Michal, “It was before the Lord, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the Lord’s people Israel—I will celebrate before the Lord. 22 I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honor.” ~ 2 Samuel 6:20-22

A lot of times pride will stop us from praising God. We’re so caught up in what people will think, that we stop caring about what God thinks. We’d rather please humans than please God. God desires us to give Him our very best. He desires us to give Him our everything, but how can we do that when we’re focused on what the person next to us will think? David, the King of Israel, didn’t care what anyone said, not even his wife. David said he would make himself more undignified than this.

See, we get caught up with how we will look to people. Or how we will come across to people. We say, ‘oh I don’t want to turn them off from our church,’ but really we’re saying, ‘I don’t want to offend their religious spirit, it is better we offend God and not give Him our everything.’ Too often we allow the spirit of religion and pride to overtake us. We have to make a stand as David did, we have to decide who we’re doing all of this for. Who we’re celebrating before. Bringing praises to. We need to make a stand before man and before God. We have to choose who we’re going to worry about offending.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Become Even More Undignified Than This.
