I play a little guitar, or perhaps I should say, I play a little bit on the guitar for personal and private enjoyment. (I don’t actually have a little guitar) It seems that every time I pick up my guitar it is a little out of tune. I sometimes work the tuning keys and tune the guitar by ear. It, however, is always best if I use an electric tuner to bring each string to a more perfect tone.
I find a life lesson here. My life gets out of tune easily and I find I need frequent tuning. Prayer is the tuning key. The longer I go without spending time in prayer the more out of tune with God I become. Daily prayer is absolutely necessary to keep in tune. I am most in tune if I include Bible reading with my prayer time. The Bible is like that electric tuner. Instead of relying only on my spiritual ear, I listen to God’s Word to give more perfect correction.
If your life feels out of tune, don’t continue to ignore the discord. Don’t keep on living life with noise and disharmony. Stop accepting as normal sour notes and harsh tones. Get your life in tune. Bring your life before the Lord in prayer and Bible reading.
