“Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.” (Psalm 100:2, KJV)
It is a sad day, indeed, when we adults — for reasons I can only begin to name — stop singing.
We sing as children, and love it. In fact, who among us doesn’t remember the songs we learned and used to sing as children?
We hear birds sing, and love it. In fact, their melodies are particularly welcome in the early Spring, when we yearn for any sign of warmer weather.
Most of us are fans of other people’s singing; but God has given each one of us a voice, and He delights in hearing our voices in song. You needn’t sing like Adele. You needn’t sound like Sinatra. What to sing? Sing of His faithfulness. Sing of His love. Sing of His greatness, His mercy, and His care of us.
Just sing. It is music to our heavenly Father and it gladdens His heart. – Luther
