Singing
We Sing, and Sing, and Sing!!!

Only that you might see and relate to yourself as the message implies….
The singing of a hymn should be a great experience for us – it can be a testimony, praise, an invitation to others. Someone has written some interesting comparisons on the hymns we sing—

We sing “Sweet Hour of Prayer” and content ourselves with ten or fifteen minutes a day.
We sing “Oh, For A Thousand Tongues” and don’t use the one we have for praise.
We sing “Blest Be the Tie that Binds” and let the least little offense sever.
We sing “Onward Christian Soldiers” and wait to be drafted into His service.
We sing “Serve the Lord With Gladness” and gripe about all that we have to do.
We sing “I Love to Tell the Story” and never mention it.

Hum the First Line

My husband and I were enjoying an impromptu concert of Sunday school songs from our grandchildren, Jacey, 7, and Jessica, 4. After they’d run through their repertoire, Jacey began making up songs of his own, using Scripture he knew.

I was impressed. “Jacey,” I said, “you’ve learned a lot of the Bible! Do you know Jesus as your personal Savior?”

Before he could answer, his little sister chimed in, “How does it go?”
