THE ARK AND HOUSEHOLDS


No longer exiled in a foreign land
The Ark next suffered decades of neglect;
Abinadab could give the Ark room and
Still fail to teach his family respect.
But Obed‑ Edom gave it its true place
So that one came to David to attest
The evidence of God's unfailing grace ‑
That through the Ark his household had been blessed.

The Pharisee invited Jesus in
But failed to give Him honour from the start;
The woman came near, conscious of her sin,
But gave the Lord the throne‑ room of her heart.

Lord Jesus, may my household always be
One where the foremost place belongs to Thee.

    And a wonderful prayer.

    May our hearts always be the home of the Lord.
