Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.
Here's the scripture that stuck this week:
II Samuel 6:20-22 The Message
20-22 David returned home to bless his family. Michal, Saul's daughter, came out to greet him: "How wonderfully the king has distinguished himself today—exposing himself to the eyes of the servants' maids like some burlesque street dancer!" David replied to Michal, "In God's presence I'll dance all I want! He chose me over your father and the rest of our family and made me prince over God's people, over Israel. Oh yes, I'll dance to God's glory—more recklessly even than this. And as far as I'm concerned...I'll gladly look like a fool...but among these maids you're so worried about, I'll be honored no end."
In the churches I grew up in, this is one of those "verses which we do not speak of". The whole idea of dancing was attributed to Satan, along with rock music and movie theaters. I love how the Message words it, "Oh yes, I'll dance to GOD's glory...". That's so important to this story. It wasn't to David's glory or the glory of acquiring the ark again, and it definitely wasn't to his wife's glory. It was for God. If you've never danced to God's glory, try it sometime. It's a beautiful thing.
What's your Word?
