Unsung but Singing

But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses… as unknown, and yet well known. —2 Corinthians 6:4, 9

Unsung but singing: this is the short and simple story of many today whose names are not known beyond the small circle of their own small company. Their gifts are not many nor great, but their song is sweet and clear….

Well, the world is big and tangled and dark, and we are never sure where a true Christian may be found. One thing we do know: the more like Christ he is the less likely it will be that a newspaper reporter will be seeking him out. However much he may value the esteem of his fellowmen, he may for the time be forced to stand under the shadow of their displeasure. Or the busy world may actually not even know he is there—except that they hear him singing.

Father, may my song today be a sweet sound in Your ears—even if in Yours alone. Amen.
