Day 21: October 5, 2013
How does a kid from the backwater of Bethlehem escape his mundane, sheep-filled existence to become king? David’s gift for music brought him into the royal court. Whoever nurtured David’s musical ability, opened up a world of possibilities.
Where better to learn the day to day workings of a kingdom than at the side of the current king? His music brought comfort and not just to Saul. During some of his loneliest moments David turned to his music.
When we work to ensure music and the arts continue to be available to children, the results will be unimaginable; kind of like a shepherd king!
God, we are your instruments. Help us to nourish the bodies, minds, and souls of our children so that your symphony will one day be heard with the clarity that you envision. Amen.
