“It is good to give thanks to the Lord and to sing praises to Your name,
O Most High; to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night, with the ten-stringed lute and with the harp, with resounding music upon the lyre” (Psalm 92:1-3).
As a beat gives rhythm to music so our faith gives rhythm to life. As varied are the instruments in today’s text, so are the many ways we can praise and worship the Lord with the music of our lives. We, too, are an instrument of ten strings, playing out our commitment to the Lord each day. With our two feet, we walk in the paths of righteousness. With our two hands, we reach out to offer the healing touch of God’s grace. With our two eyes, we see a broken world around us and the opportunity to minister in His name. With our two ears we hear the cries of those wounded and wearied by life. With our mouth, we speak words of hope and encouragement. With our mind we dwell upon all things good, right, and holy. Play well this day…make beautiful music for the world to enjoy.
