Staring Or Singing

Read Psalm 137
A woman in Texas was cleaning out a birdcage with a vacuum cleaner. Suddenly the phone rang. In reaching for the phone, the hose slipped and sucked up the parakeet.
In desperation she rescued the bird, cleaned it and put it back in the cage. But the bird no longer sings. It just sits and stares.

Can this be true of you? Maybe it’s because you’ve been sucked into worldliness. Sin always takes away the song. Sighs, not songs, befit the backslider.

Come to the Lord in confession, won’t you and you’ll return with rejoicing. Then you’ll sing, not just stare.

Prayer: Keep us, Father, from playing with sin. Stop us from going to the places of sin. Enable us to overcome our wrongs and our weaknesses which have us in their grip, and help us to be courageous, cheerful, conquering Christians: through Christ. Amen.
