In fact, the most reiterated command over and over in Scripture is to “sing.”
Maybe that’s on purpose.
I like what songwriter Rich Mullins said about it:
“When you find a command that is easy to follow (and fun to follow) you should follow it a lot, because not all of them are that easy. And certainly some of them are less fun than that.”
I dare you to sing out today.
- Maybe you’ll hear a tune on the radio that speaks your language.
- Perhaps you'll find your hand tapping a rhythm that you're not sure you should give into.
- It could be that it's time to crank up the music after dinner and turn your household into a house party.
God gave you this gift. In fact, make it a point to bring this attitude into wherever you attend a church service this weekend. Whether or not your church experience feels like a mirror that just reflects your particular preferences, desires, and dreams… SING!
