David becomes king and tries to move the ark to Jerusalem.
- Rejoicing – As the ark was being moved, David and the people were rejoicing before the Lord. At what special event have you rejoiced before the Lord? How is rejoicing in the Lord part of your daily life?
- Fear – The ark was not supposed to be carried in a cart, nor was it to be touched. When Uzzah touched it, he died on the spot. The celebration ended. David was afraid. Do you have a proper reverence for the Lord?
