Life in harmony, life in one song

Harmony is something that is very important to me. I get extremely stressed out when I find myself in disharmony. It is very hard for me to be in disharmony as how it would be difficult to be in a hall filled with musicians and singers each playing and singing their own tunes, their own songs. Can you imagine how jarring that sound can be.

But sad to say, much of this world is in disharmony. Each person is playing their own tune, singing their own songs, at their own beat, at their own volume. They just want to be heard and they just want attention all to themselves, not realising that he is not the only one around. If only everyone of us can listen and play our lives in harmony with one another, wouldn't we be creating beautiful music? You can play a different tune, we all do, but in the right beat, in the right tempo, in the right volume at the right time. Then we will sound like one song and be in harmony and it will be beautiful.

Paul said in Romans: Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. (Rom 12:16-17).

In our family, in our church, in our communities, in our working place, we need to listen to each other and sing in harmony, singing one song.
