A Pleasant Thing To Do

Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant. - Psalm 135:3
Singing changes one's whole attitude. It is a pleasant thing we can do at any time and circumstance. It makes joyful times more joyful and difficult times easier to bear.

Old Testament battles were won because God's people started singing! Martyrs like John Hus stood firm in unbelievable trials by singing in the midst of the flames. Songs like "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" were sung by slaves as they work under miserable conditions. They learned by experience what we should not forget.

Sing praises to God with the voice he gave you even if you can't carry a tune.

It will be good and pleasing to God and you.
