Musical Memories

David and his army commanders then appointed men from the families of Asaph, Heman, and Jjeduthum to proclaim God's messages to the accompaniment of harps, lyres, and cymbals.  (1 Chronicles 25:1)

   Forgetfulness -- it plagues us all.  How is your memory?  Have you been embarrassed lately at meeting an old friend and not remembering his name?  Yes, it happens to the best of us.  When you are over 55, you call it a senior moment.

   David devised a way for his people to remember God's messages,  He appointed men to put the messages into musical lyrics.  It may seem weird, but putting Scriptures to music makes remembering easier.  We can sing bible verses over and over until they become part of us.  No wonder so many of the Psalms were sung!

   Try listening to worship music as you work around the house or drive back and forth to work.  Guess what?  While you are humming or singing God's words, you are worshiping him.
