Day 17 – December 17

1216“Music hath charms to sooth a savage beast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.” William Congreve

Music can often address emotional and spiritual needs that words cannot. It can provide a moment of healing that we cannot seem to find in any other way.

Each of us have songs that we love to listen to, that encourage us. Why not share those songs with someone else. Maybe it is as simple as telling someone about a song or maybe you want to purchase a CD for someone, but however you do it, let them know those songs that mean so much to you in order to encourage them, as well.

David would take up his lyre and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better. (1 Samuel 16.23)

Other Ideas

•iTunes and other online music stores have an option to gift a song to someone. When you come across a song that means a lot to you, gift it to someone else, along with a note as to why it means so much to you.

•If you do not have a specific song or album in mind, give and iTunes gift card (or other online music store) to allow someone to pick their own song(s).
