Thought of the Day !!
[God says,] "Away with your hymns of praise! They are only noise to my ears. I will not listen to your music, no matter how lovely it is. Instead, I want to see a mighty flood of justice, a river of righteous living that will never run dry."
God isn't telling us not to sing. Actually, we find in the New Testament that we should sings songs of praise. What God does not want is to hear us singing to Him while living lives that are unjust. We are called to get our lives right with God and allow our praise to be genuine for the one who has made us righteous. When we're living a life of justice and peace for others, our hymns of praise will be sweet music to God's ears...even when we sing off key.
In the love of Christ,
