2 Samuel 6:14 - 15

In some churches, people clap and lift their hands to God in praise. They don’t care what others are thinking or what anyone else is doing. They praise God with abandon.

For others, praise and worship are internal processes with little or no outward sign of celebration, although they’re just as thankful and joyful as the more demonstrative believers.

David fell into the first group. He reveled in God’s goodness, dancing for all he was worth. While he was later criticized for his exuberance, all that mattered to him was raising his voice and his heart to his wonderful God.

Which type of worshiper are you? Are you a quiet worshiper whose awe and love for God flow out in silent prayer? Or do you raise the roof with your vocal and active worship? Isn’t it great to know that God loves both kinds of worship?

Your worship might be enriched by trying something new. If you’re quiet, try clapping your hands. If you’re a dancer, try standing still and focusing all that energy on God in silent prayer.
