Liberating Love Devotion June 19

2 Samuel 6:20b-22 But Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, ‘How the king of Israel honoured himself today, uncovering himself today before the eyes of his servants’ maids, as any vulgar fellow might shamelessly uncover himself!’ David said to Michal, ‘It was before the Lord, who chose me in place of your father and all his household, to appoint me as prince over Israel, the people of the Lord, that I have danced before the Lord. I will make myself yet more contemptible than this, and I will be abased in my own eyes; but by the maids of whom you have spoken, by them I shall be held in honour.’

My son David was so full of joy that I had blessed his community that as people carried the box with the ten commandments to its new home, he danced fervently and enthusiastically. He sacrificed offerings to me. He forgot to carry himself with the decorum of a king and instead became a joy-filled child lost in his love for me. And he did me great honor when he said his reputation mattered far less than his celebration of me. Are you willing to be viewed as outside the norm in order to live a life of joy and celebration with me?
