Revelry & Reverence

I’ve been reading about how King David in the Bible wanted to bring the Ark of the Covenant (God’s presence) up to Jerusalem. His first attempt to move the Ark was disastrous – a guy was killed. In David’s second attempt, he made sure that everyone followed God’s directions on how to transport the Ark.
My take away from this story is that we must always treat God with respect & reverence, never thinking that we can do things our way & ignore God’s directives, presence or preferences. We can revel in God’s presence but not at the expense of reverence 🙂

One thought on “Revelry & Reverence

  1. Something that I am endeavoring to understand is what you mentioned, “God’s directive / direction” He was pretty clear about the 10 Commandments, but then protestants (for lack of a better box) seem to get into the fight between “direction / law / grace”. Jesus said He came to fullfill the law – not do away with it – the directions. Hmmmm so we pick and choose of the 613 and of course lean towards the 365 promises.
    So it seems that Shabbot and Amidah should be given more revelry and reverence, or was that law or a directive, or a commandment. Grace be unto you, Not caught up in it but just trying to put what works into perspective.
