The school children’s song brought a smile to my lips and an “Amen” from my heart: “Thank You for the Music!”
Of all the people in the Bible whose career I envy, it would be Heman, Asaph and Ethan, whose detailed family lines are listed in 1 Chronicles 6:31-48. Their job must have been important to have such impressive credentials listed there: Temple music! Praising God!
Aren’t we privileged to have a God who communicates with us in this way? He puts skill in the heads and hands and voices of those He chooses to lead in this service, and He plants joy and delight in the hearts of all of us who participate—whether in church, in the kitchen, the shower, or outdoors. And then He sits back and enjoys it as we return the praise to Him.
Yes, thank You, Lord, for the music!
