Have you ever sat in front of a live orchestra or band, and listened as they tuned up their instruments? It's usually not a very pleasant sound; but in a few minutes glorious music fills the room!
I have never learned to play a musical instrument. In fact I was once told I could not take lessons by our school's music teacher! I could not catch on to reading music; maybe because I am weak in math; and much of reading music is timingI've always wished I could play; and confess I was a little envious of those who did.
Well, not long ago I heard something that really got my attention. The thought was we should not use our mouth to tear people down by sharing gossip. (James 3:9-10) The speaker went on to explain our mouths are designed to be "instruments" of praise to our magnificent God! Wow, I can play an instrument; and you can, too! "I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Thy wonders. I will be glad and exult in Thee; I will sing praise to Thy name, O Most High (Psalm 9:1-2 NAS)." Let's tune up our instruments, and learn to praise God in perfect harmony!
