Chapter-a-Day I Samuel 4

Ark

. I Samuel 4:4 (TM)

Bob Dylan wrote, "Do you ever wonder just what God requires? You think He’s just an errand-boy to satisfy your wandering desires." That’s what Israel was thinking when they went to get the Ark of the Covenant. They weren’t seeking God’s presence – they were seeking a good luck charm. Are we seeking a relationship with God; to know the person and presence of God in our lives? Or do we want a lucky charm to pull out of our pocket when we need it?
