Living above ‘the braying of asses and the grunting of hogs’!

Written By: John - Aug• 13•15

From time to time I hear people say things like, “I’m just not really into the music,” or “I’m just not a music person…” Last Sunday we sang Luther’s ‘A Mighty Fortress is our God.’ Before we sang the hymn Ronnie Foster, our Minister of Music, shared the following.

“In the forward of a book, Luther once wrote: ‘Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world. It controls our thoughts, minds, hearts, and spirits…A person who…does not regard music as a marvelous creation of God…does not deserve to be called a human being; he should be permitted to hear nothing but the braying of asses and the grunting of hogs.’”

You’ve gotta love Luther! Let’s live above the ‘braying of asses and the grunting of hogs’ and join with the angles and worship our God today with His Word, in prayer and meditation, and with song!
