H.E.A.R.T. of the Matter - Making Harmony

February 10

(1 Peter 3:8-9 NIV) "Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. {9} Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing."

There are three basic note structures in music: UNISON, where all voices or players move together and play the exact same note; HARMONY, where notes are played with various degrees of space between them; and DISSONANCE, where notes are played so close together that they conflict with one another. Unison can be powerful, but soon gets boring. Dissonance is grating to the ear. It is harmony that makes good music and brings auditory joy. It’s the same with relationships. The couple who endures has learned to harmonize. They don’t live in boring unison or grating dissonance. They harmonize as they make relational music. They keep the right amount of space between them as they move together. The “H” in H.E.A.R.T. stands for Harmony. Work at it. Pray for it. -- Friar Tuck’s Word of the Day
