Michal watched the celebration going on outside of her window. Her husband, King David had just brought home the ark of the covenant. But Michal didn’t join in on the praising of God. Instead, from her room, she despised David in her heart.

Hiding behind walls of isolation, anger, guilt or unhappiness will only feed your disappointments. Solitude will rob you of the opportunity to worship God with His people. It will make encouragement from and fellowship with your brethren impossible. Don’t allow yourself to stay tucked away from the good that God has for you through his people. Make interaction with God and his people a priority.

I Chronicles 15:25-29
