SWEET FREEDOM DAILY DEVOTIONAL: “Give Me The Songs Of A Nation”

Psalm. (Photo by: Godong/UIG via Getty Images)

Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob! Begin the music, strike the timbrel, play the melodious harp and lyre.
Psalm 81:1-2

Let these two quotations wash over you:

“I am the art in your arthouses, the ideas in your institutions, the laws in your
land, the message in your movies, the thoughts of your teachers, the values
your kids value. I affect you. Do you affect me? – Culture

And also this one, from the fifth-century BC Greek musician Damon of Athens:

Give me the songs of a nation, and it matters not who writes its laws.

I wish more of us especially our politicians – realized that ideas have consequences in the real world. When we embrace certain ideals in our movies and songs (sex without restraint, for example, which happened during the “free love” 1970s), it affects our culture in ways that rules and regulations can’t undo.

Sweet Freedom in Action
Today, don’t let movies, songs, and the arts be dominated by liberals. Instead, arm your Christian children and grandkids with a solid worldview and encourage them to enter these areas boldly and with excellence.
