Remember that thou Magnify the work Of God which men behold

The relationship between us and the work of God should be such that we reverence it and give honor to it (Job 36:24-25), because God blesses those who bless His work.
In 1st Samuel chapters 5 [five] through 7 [seven] there is a contradistinction between the attitudes of the People.
In chapter 5
The Philistines captured the ark of the covenant from the Israelites and took it to the house of their god, Dagon, but in the morning it was worshiping the Ark of the God of Israel, you may carry the things from the house of God literal items or just information that was meant to be confidential and make it conversation material with your ‘friends’ but God will make sure you will pay for every careless word or action you will do.
They moved the Ark to the Gathites and because of curiosity, wanting to establish truly what was inside that ark, and they were doing that not for the right reasons but to laugh it to scorn and God descended and smote men with hemorrhoids and boils in their secret parts. every time we talk ill of God’s work either to the none saved or even with your saved brethren, you are in away looking into the Ark and God will visit you with a visitation to judge you for your misconduct.
Chapter 6;
Men of Bethshemesh were very excited to see the Ark come they probably had never gotten any closer to it, they could see it afar off [at least to the most of them] however their joy was short lived when their relationship with the Ark caused their death they looked at what was in the ark and never regarded it anymore, they went like, so all along this is what was in this ark, the very act of looking into it may not have been the reason for the death of 50,070 men, but the after thoughts, what they had thought of the ark was totally different from what they had seen, and so they despised it in their hearts, even after offering a sacrifice to God for it, but was that all that was in that ark?
And because God does not entertain men who lightly esteem His work, He “1st Samuel 6:19 And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the LORD, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the LORD had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.”
So you can go right ahead and despise the order we have in church, criticize the way your pastor does his things or even talk back to him, yet remember that God has never changed.

Chapter 7.
The contradiction was clear here in this chapter the way the Israelites reacted towards the Ark at its reception gave the Israelites peace for a whole Twenty [20] years because they repented and had a right attitude towards the work of God, His servant and God’s people. The Ark that had just killed men a few days ago, was blessing the Israelites.

Sometimes we do not need to pray for a blessing, a miracle of healing or long life. You have it all – Regard the Ark (Work of God) and (Job 36:11 )If you obey and serve him, you shall spend their days in prosperity, and your years in pleasures.Your spirit is everything.
