An intriguing theory out of MIT suggests that human language may have evolved from imitating the songs of birds. As we learned how to express a wide range of emotions in song, we started adding the first simple words to further clarify our meanings. We may be a race of singers! Could this be why American Idol seems to tap into something deeply tribal for so many people? What tune is your brain singing to you? What song do you want it to sing? What are you singing to others? (from How Words Affect our Brains by Margie Meacham) Psalm 5:11 “Let them ever sing for joy…” 

Psalm 33:3 “Sing to Him a new song…” I Cor. 14:15 “Sing with the spirit, and sing with the mind.” Psalm 95:1,2 “Oh come, let us sing to the Lord!…..” 
When you sing you glorify God, you encourage yourself and others, you make war over the enemy, and your heart becomes more pliable to Him. What are you “singing” to the Lord? To yourself? To others? 
“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” Colossians 3:16 
May you have the song of the Lord in your heart this week and “sing” it out to others!
