II Samuel 6: 21-22 ” 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. I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes.’ “

King David had gone out to welcome the Ark of the Covenant as it was being carried into Jerusalem. He headed up the procession, leaping and dancing with all his might before the Lord with unbridled joy. His wife, Michal, watched him from a window with scorn and contempt…telling him later that he acted like nothing more than worthless riff-raff. But David knew where he had come from…from his humble beginnings as a shepherd…to now as king of Israel…David hadn’t lost sight of just how far God had brought him. And he didn’t care what others thought, for he would worship his God with thankfulness. gratitude, and joy.
