Undignified

Well I am here in sunny southern California on a cool overcast Sunday morning sitting at Starbucks.

I am excited for what the week holds at the Origins and Ethos Conferences. But this morning I am even more excited to be attending my first Mosaic gathering.

This morning I was 2 Samuel in my reading through the Bible. I love the passage where David is chastised by his wife Michal for dancing and disrobing in front of the servant girls. I love his response, "I will celebrate before the Lord. I will become even more undignified than this." Wow. I want this to become my motto. I don't want to a sanitized Christian that never offends believers at the cost of never reaching the lost.

At NNCC Wayne Cordiero said that he wants to live for an audience of one. I guess that's was David was doing. He was not dancing to show what a crazy new king he was; he was celebrating to his audience of one. And you notice he was confident that when he danced for his audience of one, that the servant girls would hold him in honor for doing so.
