When pride comes, then comes shame;
But with the humble is wisdom.

God Bless You!

--TODAY'S NOT SO TRIVIAL TRIVIA QUESTION:
Q. We know that the ark of the LORD came into the City of David. Where was it then placed?
--TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:
Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
-Henry Ward Beecher
Sam and Ruth had just bought a new car when winter hit with all its fury. "I wonder if the car has seat warmers," Ruth wondered.
"It sure does," said Sam, looking through the owner's manual. "Here it is... rear defrosters."
--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:
Q. Where was the ark placed?
A. In the midst of the tabernacle that David had erected for it.
So they brought the ark of the LORD, and set it in its place in the midst of the tabernacle that David had erected for it.
2 Samuel 6:17
