I have always loved listening to my wife sing. Though she has a beautiful voice of her own, her greatest talent is in the ability to sing a perfect harmony that makes both her voice and the other person’s sound amazing.
Singing isn’t just a nice idea or something sweet to do with our children. Singing is something that God has designed for us to do forever. Jesus sang with his disciples and when we sing a new song he listens and joins in with such perfect harmony that the song takes on an eternal beauty.
So when God says sing a new song think of it as an invitation to share the newest melodies of your life. Some of the verses may be sad or even a bit out off key; but He is listening and waiting to hear us so he can join his voice with ours. Together with Him we will then sing the very best new song of all!
