Praise the Lord with the harp;
make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing to him a new song;
play skillfully, and shout for joy. Psalm 33:2-3
Legendary college football coach Lou Holtz once said, “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”
What sort of new songs are you singing to the Lord these days? What? You don’t play an instrument? You don’t sing, you say? Everyone sings. Whether we sing in tune or not is what many people worry about.
When I try to ask men to come join our barbershop chorus, the number one and two answers I receive are, “I can’t sing,” and “you wouldn’t want me to spoil your sound.” Actually, for the most part, it’s not about the sound, though we strive for quality. More singers equate to more camaraderie and community.
Now, think about why God might want us to sing to Him. Do you really think he cares how well you sing? He has several million angels (minimum) who can accomplish that task on demand. No, one reason I would say is he wants to further that relationship he is trying to build with you.
So, what’s your song?
