Book Excerpt 

For Further Thought:

1.     In this story we see some other important points: sharing can change a life. How can sharing change lives?

2.     Have you ever shared something with someone? How did they react?

3.     We also see that music is powerful—it speaks to our hearts in special ways.

4.     Do you like music? Why or why not?

5.     Do you like to use music to worship God?


Prayer for Today: Dear Jesus, show me when you want me to share something I have with someone else or do something to bless someone. I know that You have a plan. I want to be a part of what You are doing. Thank You for using people and music to bless our lives. Thank you for the people at my church and in my family who help me and bless me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
