Some Give All
Posted by Phil
He ran. Day after day, he ran. Before school. After school. On weekends. Everywhere he went people would say to him: “Is that all you do? Run?” He was used to the teasing. He was used to being asked why he ran all the time. But in his heart, he didn’t care. He remembered bitterly the pain of last year’s defeat. He’d lost the gold medal in the state cross country meet by just a few seconds, which kept him from his dream of standing on the highest place on the podium. So he ran. He would give it all he had.
Read 2 Samuel 6:12-15 and check out what David was doing in verse 14.
Why did God bless the house of Obed-Edom?
What did this signify to David?
When David went down and brought up the ark of God from Obed-Edom’s house, how did he and his men remove it this time?
After six steps, what did David do?
Verse 14 says David danced with all his might before the Lord. Why did David dance?
What have you given all your might to in the past?
Have you ever worshiped God with everything in you? If not, what is holding you back?
David knew God’s grace and forgiveness. He also knew His holiness. A right relationship with God helps us to recognize who God is, and only when we know that truth can we truly worship Him. He is the Maker of all things. He is the Lover of our souls. He is forgiveness, mercy, and love. He is holy. He deserves our worship and praise. With everything in us, we should worship God.
David was dancing with all his might before the Lord wearing a linen ephod. —2 Samuel 6:14
