On the bright side

Studying the Old Testament this year reminded me of an incident I enjoyed while teaching at the Missionary Training Center. I told how only a few men were assigned to carry the Ark of the Covenant (referring to it only as "the Ark") and how specific the Lord had been about no one touching it. I then related the story of the destruction of Uzzah and emphasized the importance of strict obedience to the commandments given by the Lord. I was quite satisfied that my point had been well taken when one young elder raised his hand.

He asked, "Do you mean to tell me that only four men carried around a boat big enough to hold two of every animal in the world?" - Randy Fox, Salt Lake City, Utah
