Daily Inspiration- 2 Samuel 6:12-15, 17-19

David is not ashamed to sing and dance before the presence of God in the Ark of the Covenant. His joy is something we do well to reflect upon as it indicates the joy we should have in our hearts at the gift of salvation offered to us through the cross and resurrection of Jesus. Where is the joy in our hearts and lives at this moment? If it is not there we need to ask ourselves where it is, and then go and get it!

2 Samuel 6:12-15, 17-19

12 David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the City of David amid festivities. 13 As soon as the bearers of the ark of the Lord had advanced six steps, he sacrificed an ox and a fatling. 14 Then David, girt with a linen apron, came dancing before the Lord with abandon, 15 as he and all the Israelites were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouts of joy and to the sound of the horn. 17 The ark of the Lord was brought in and set in its place within the tent David had pitched for it. Then David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Lord. 18 When he finished making these offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts. 19 He then distributed among all the people, to each man and each woman in the entire multitude of Israel, a loaf of bread, a cut of roast meat, and a raisin cake. With this, all the people left for their homes.
