Enthusiasm can be a great attribute. But it can also get you in trouble. Especially if your excitement causes you to step out of the will of God. That’s what happened to David and we can read about it in 2 Samuel 6:1-11. It seems that David was so pumped about his new capital of Jerusalem, that he wanted to move the Ark of the Covenant there as soon as possible. But in his excitement, he got in such a hurry that he failed to do things according to God’s standards. And his over-zealousness had some deadly ramifications. David’s heart was in the right place. He was well-intended. But disobedience is disobedience. And being in a hurry to honor God is no excuse for disobeying Him. David was in a position that came with huge responsibilities. He was God’s shepherd over the entire flock of Israel. And His sins carried corporate weight. As king, when David sinned, everyone suffered. And even zeal for God was not an excuse.
