Music & Dancing

by djgorena

As I drive down the road with my two-year-old (No! I’m not driving as I’m typing this!), I look in the review mirror and see that he’s dancing. I generally only listen to Christian music or to oldies and what I have noticed about Gio is that this kid’s got rhythm! He dances in his car seat as he gazes out his window. If I notice him dancing I start to dance with him and he giggles and moves even more. I just wonder if in his mind he is worshiping the Lord as he dances. In fact, I wonder what he’s thinking period!

I remember a story in the Bible about a king who danced. Read what Samuel the prophet said about King David:

And so it was, when those bearing the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, that he sacrificed oxen and fatted sheep. Then David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was wearing a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting and with the sound of the trumpet. (2 Samuel 6:13-15)

Now my prayer for my son is that one day he too will dance in worship with all of his might before the Lord.
