We want to have fun with our Christmas music; but there’s a serious purpose behind it, too.
As I go through my blog archives each day, I’m struck by the number of news stories I’ve forgotten: and although I’ve posted thousands of them, they’re just the tiniest drop in the bucket. There’s stuff going on out there that would unsettle the digestion of a vulture. You hardly need me to list it for you. If you’re reading this, you know exactly what I mean.
We sing for two reasons I can think of: so that God Our Lord will hear us–and so that we will hear Him. It may even do some good for this fallen world to hear us. It can’t hurt!
So keep those Christmas hymn requests coming. We can’t know what use the Father will make of our efforts–probably to accomplish some good thing that we never even thought of. He’s very good at that.
