These are good words for any believer, but especially for those of us entrusted with the responsibility to lead some aspect of corporate worship. Referring to the friction between David and his wife after he danced before the Lord (2 Sam. 6), D.A. Carson remarks,

[Michal] despises David precisely because he is so God-centered he cares very little about his persona. People constantly fretting about what others think of them cannot be absorbed by the sheer God-awareness and God-centeredness that characterize all true worship.
