Re:Verse passage – 2 Samuel 6 (day five)

vs 20 Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David and said, “How the king of Israel distinguished himself today! He uncovered himself today in the eyes of his servants’ maids as one of the foolish ones shamelessly uncovers himself!”

A strong word/warning to parents and grandparents in this passage- our children are watching and learning from our actions and attitudes.  We don’t have to wonder where this perspective from Michal comes from.  She saw it with her father, king Saul. Many times Saul chose his own reputation and image ahead of obedience and devotion to God.  Michal basically is calling out David for “conduct unbecoming of a king”.  She is more concerned about the image of the king than bringing glory to God.  David was not. We have opportunities to communicate those same values and priorities many times a day, not just in worship services. I pray our children (and others) see in us and begin to learn for themselves that devotion and obedience to God are greater than anything else.

    Thanks for this great reminder Scott! We are so grateful for the youth ministry at FBCSA for instilling in our youth the constant need for seeking after God, remaining obedient to Him, and encouraging accountability with one another!
