Text: 2 Samuel 6: 10-12.

10: So David would not remove the ark of the Lord unto him into the city of David: but David carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite.
11: And the ark of the Lord continued in the house of Obededom the Gittite three months: and the Lord blessed Obededom, and all his household.
12: And it was told king David, saying, The Lord hath blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness.

The same ark that led to the death of Uzzah brought blessings upon Obededom. The ark itself symbolises God’s presence, many bible scholars explained why God killed Uzzah; some said he was not a levite so he was not permitted to touch the ark, some were able to prove that he was a levite, the point is this only God knows the best reasons why someone is killed.

I want to explain here what could make God’s presence be a plague to one and a blessing to another. It is important you know that God can’t put up with sin, a sinner can’t enjoy his presence except he repents, Uzzah might most likely have sins in his life that made God stroke him.

For Obededom to enjoy the stay of the ark of God in his house shows he must have lived holy and commanded his family members to follow suit. He must have told his children ‘ no querel in this house, no fight, insults, no telling of lies, no immoral talks, no gossips, no ungodly conversation if we want to remain alive ‘.

Obededom must have taught his children the ten commandments, he must have taught them the ways of God and instead of plague it was blessings to his family.

Some bible scholars said it was because Obededom was a levite that’s the reason God blessed him, that’s not correct, if he was a levite and lived in sin he would have died like Uzziah, he must have kept the laws of Moses to stay alive and enjoy the blessings of staying close to the ark.

The ark of God still dwell among people, remember, the ark simply symbolises the presence of God, teach your family members the ways of God and you will enjoy his presence, you will feel his hand upon your home. God bless you.

* As for me and my family we will serve the Lord. Grace to serve you Lord, grant unto us.
