Humble Actions and Attitudes before the King of Kings (Family Worship in 2Samuel 6)

What was God so upset about at the beginning of the chapter and Michal so upset about at the end? Pastor leads his family in today’s “Hopewell @Home” passage. 2Samuel 6 prepares us for the first of the two serial readings in public worship on the coming Lord’s Day morning. In these twenty-three verses, we learn that while at the beginning of the chapter God’s wrath came against David’s failure to humble himself before the King, by the end of the chapter Michal “daughter of Saul” is wroth with David precisely for humbling himself before the King! Humility before God in worship shows up in actions (doing only that by which He has given us to come near through Christ) and in attitudes (zeal unto Him, lowliness before Him, esteeming others as ourselves, and even being humble in our own eyes).
