"Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" - Admiral David Glasgow Farragut
When King David restored the Ark of the Covenant to Israel, he ripped off his royal garments and danced before the Lord (2 Sam. 6). His wife, Michal, didn’t understand how he could embarrass himself in such an undignified way. King David declared that he’d become even “more undignified” than this. Likewise there will always be people that want to criticize you, because they don’t understand what God is doing in your life. Don’t be afraid to humble yourself and respond to God in spite of what others think.
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor (James 4:10, NLT).
