Last night, we attended our youngest son’s middle school graduation. At the end of the ceremony, a bagpipe player performed. As I watched, I thought of how cool it was that there was a bagpipe player. It is a very unique instrument that you don’t hear too often. I also thought how amazing it was that there were people that could actually play that instrument and make that great sound. I began to think that we are all like that bagpipe player.
In 1 Chronicles 23:3-5 we read, “3 Now the Levites were numbered from the age of thirty years and above; and the number of individual males was thirty-eight thousand. 4 Of these, twenty-four thousand were to look after the work of the house of the Lord, six thousand were officers and judges, 5 four thousand were gatekeepers, and four thousand praised the Lord with musical instruments, “which I made,” said David, “for giving praise.”
David reminded me in today’s scripture that we are all musical instruments that the Lord has made “for giving praise” to the Lord. No, we might not play a bagpipe, but whatever you do, whatever you say, where ever you go and whatever you look at, you are making a song. Our actions will determine that that song will be. Will you use your body today “for giving praise” to the Lord? Or will you use your body today to give into the temptations of the world? The question isn’t whether or not you will make a song today, the question is “what song will you make”?
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
