1 Chronicles 13:13-14 So david did not move the Ark into the City of David. Instead, he took it to the house of Obed-edom of Gath. The are of God remained there in Obed-edom's house for three months, and the Lord blessed the household of Obed-edom and everything in it.
The Ark held the ten commandments. And Obed-edom knew the importance of them...of the covenant between God and His people. When I read this I thought in each of our houses today here in America you can probably find a Bible... the covenant between us and God. If we love that Bible and read it... cherish what is in it... God will also bless our household and everything in it! What if Obed-edom had put the ark in a dark corner and let it collect dust, what if he didn't try to understand it's importance? I don't think his household would have been blessed do you?
I can tell you from my own experience when I took my Bible off the shelf...blew off the dust and started reading and understanding God and His love for me, my household became blessed!! After today I will forever see this scripture differently!!
