We are usually very careful not to embarrass ourselves, so we tend to try blend in and do what everyone else does. There are times, however, when the crowd we follow do things that don’t feel right, and it makes us miserable. Before this bible reading Israel was miserable and we see here how David put his trust in God and led his people back to God. We see his complete joy at having the symbol of God back in Israel by the way he danced. He danced without worrying what others (including his wife), thought. When we are miserable in the world, we can find lasting satisfaction and joy when we put our trust in Jesus and enjoy God’s presence in our lives.
Please help us focus fully on you and not be guided by our own will or by what others think. Help us to be joyful like David and celebrate your presence in our lives.
In Jesus name we pray
