RE-LEARNING ONE’S SONG
In Europe there is a bird called the “chaff finch.” It is about the size and color of a robin. It has a beautiful song and many people keep these chaff finches in cages in their homes to hear them sing. But the chaff finch has a peculiar characteristic. It can forget how to sing. When that happens the only way the bird can recover its song is to be taken into the woods where the wild birds sing. If it does not learn how to sing again it becomes depressed and dies.
Are you like the chaff finch? Have you forgotten how to sing the Lord’s song? There is a place you can go for help. When two or three or more are gathered to praise the Lord, often those who have forgotten the Lord’s song are enabled to recover it.
