Why sing?

Most birds sound like sopranos.  Every now and then you hear an alto, but regardless they are always singing.  Whether early in the morning or in the wee hours of the night, they sing.  They neither have a roof over their head or a chef to cook to provide meals, they sing.  In storm, snow and blazing heat without air conditioning or the warmth of a fire, they sing.  A bird will sing. Why does the bird sing whether alone or with the flock?  What prompts them to chirp?    Only God knows.

Psalm 104:12

12 By them the birds of the heavens have their home;
They sing among the branches.

We may not know for sure why birds sing, but we certainly ought to know why we sing.  When we think about the continual flow of blessing that envelope us each day, praise and song should be our response.  When we consider the Lord’s death on a cross on behalf of desolate, sinful man, songs of praise should fall from our lips.  No matter our circumstance in life, a song of thankfulness should be heard by all who come near.  What prompts us to sing?  Jesus is the reason.  He bids us sing. Why we do not sing, God only knows.
