Don't Forget the Music

Don't miss the music in Scripture. Or in your walk with the Lord. 

We are people of words. We're good at words. The words of Scripture are vehicles that carry great thoughts about our great Good. How valued are the words of Scripture!

But in real relationships, there are always the unspoken sounds we dare not miss. In my younger years I often missed the music. Truth is, my relationship with God has often been too cerebral. But there is a dimension in every genuine relationship that cannot be expressed by words, a reality that makes you soar or ache or weep or rejoice.

In your daily Bible reading, pay close attention to what is said. Examine carefully the words. Explore their relationships. Get close to the Scriptures. But don't forget the music.
