For His Glory

My sweet harp teacher, Mrs. A., shared a lesson with me that she had learned from a friend who was a famous singer. When Mrs. A. asked what she did with all the compliments she recieved, the singer answered, “I give them all back to God.”

Too often people who receive praise take all the glory for themselves. The result is that they become arrogant and proud. But the praise truly belongs to God. Without Him we would be nothing. He is the One who gives us any talent whatsoever. When we are complimented on anything, whether it be ablitity in music, writing, or athletics, we must immediately give the compliment to our Savior, who deserves all the glory.

The aim and final reason of all music should be nothing else but the Glory of God and the refreshment of the Spirit.

~J. S. Bach
