“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.”

– Col. 3:14 {ESV}

One by one, the musicians in the orchestra seat themselves on stage – each warming up by playing scales, notes and parts of the music they’ve prepared. None of it sounds very good because everyone is doing their own thing. Soon, the first chair violinist enters and plays one note. EVERYONE in the orchestra tunes to that note and they are all “together” – but it is not until the orchestra conductor lifts his baton and directs everyone in the playing of the music, that it all comes together…in perfect harmony.

When we live our life through the practice of loving others, we are setting up all the players in our life to be bound together in a similar perfect harmony – conducted by the One (God) who orchestrates life.

Let’s pray that we can practice loving thoughts that transfer into actions to help our children realize and recognize the importance of loving others well. When they see us get along in our marriage, with our siblings, extended family, and friends, they will have the example they need to make the right kinds of choices to will help them live in harmony with others, too.
