The music died. Everybody froze. Uzza lay dead upon the ground.
“What happened?!?” someone in the crowd shouted.
“We were just walking along and the oxen stumbled. Uzza reached out his hand to steady the ark of God and then….”
The law flashed through their minds: “thou shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die”.
As you set out to draw closer to The Lord be sure to follow His lead. Don’t allow your flesh to get in the way of something holy. Trust that God has it under control.
