The priests brought the ark of the covenant of the LORD to its place beneath the wings of the cherubim in the sanctuary, the holy of holies of the temple.

Curiosity killed the cat…well, not in this house anyway.  Curiosity did kill the post this morning.  The opening statement (above) came from Today’s First Reading and as soon as I read that, my mind began to wander – do we know where the Ark of the Covenant is today?  So, after reading Today’s Readings, I immediately went to back to the interwebs and did a simple search of “whatever happened to the ark of the covenant?” and let me say this, there are numerous articles about this topic.  I read three our four of them and found them all interesting…the other 500 will have to wait until I have more time.

So is there a reason my mind took me in search of the Ark?  I’m not sure, but it gives me something to reflect on throughout today and the future.  Do I really need to see the Ark to believe in God’s covenant with man?  My answer to that is simple – no.  I have gone all these years without seeing the Ark of the Covenant, right?  I am drawn to the comments that Jesus spoke to Thomas after His resurrection…Blessed are those who have not seen and still believe.

Without seeing you we love you.
Without touching you we embrace.
Without knowing you we follow.
Without seeing you we believe.  David Haas.

Do something great for our Lord today…love, embrace, follow and believe.

God’s will, not mine, be done.

Be not afraid; just have faith.

Jesus, I trust in You.

He must increase; I must decrease.

Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.

But you man of God, chose righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience and gentleness.  Compete well for the faith.
