The Force behind this object of power began to wreak havoc on its strange surroundings. It killed, ravaged, and even tore down objects in the dark of night, without so much as a subtle warning. This happened so often, that the rulers of the land gathered together to decide how to best and safely expel the pure golden treasure acquired through war. "It must go! We will put it in the cart, with these oxen pulling it, and let it go where its Power will choose. We will put gifts and treasures with it for those who it chooses to grace with its presence and power, as they plainly must be worthy to be able to coexist even in proximity!"
As the oxen began a focused excursion cross-country, led by a Force stronger than nature, the people looked on with awe, and strange wonder. "The gods save whoever gets near that!" they called out as they stepped out of its wending way, keeping a safe distance. When it neared its destination, joy flushed the excited faces of those familiar with their treasure once taken in war and now coming home! "It has returned!" They sang out and literally danced through the village streets. When an oxen stumbled, a kind-hearted man reached up to steady the glorious prize: he crumpled to his well-meaning and misguided feet, dead.
Finally it arrived. When it was in set into the perfect place, designed to have and hold its sacred beauty, the Power that protected it thus far, in turn blessed everyone with life and success who so much as came close.
May I tell you a secret whispered to me about that treasure?
It is me.
It is you.
I didn't write the story either. God did; in I Samuel chapters 5 and 6.
There is not even a shadow that can harm the people who house the Spirit of God, without His permission. People cannot even innocently and unhelpfully try to help you, outside of His will and protection. We are completely utterly safe as we yield to His guidance and wend our way homeward. And when we arrive at the destination, the treasure you bring will be the blessing upon the one who is deserving.
So, I'm going for a ride. Watch out.
