Judah will hold the royal scepter, And his descendants will always rule. Nations will bring him tribute And bow in obedience before him.
1 Corinthians 10:31
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might…
“Come, they told me
(Pa rum pum pum-pum, after every phrase)
A newborn King to see
Our finest gifts we bring
To lay before the king
So to honor Him
When we come
I am a poor boy too
I have no gift to bring
That's fit to give our King
Shall I play for you
On my drum
The ox and lamb kept time
I played my drum for Him
I played my best for Him
Then He smiled at me Me and my drum”
“The Little Drummer Boy" (originally known as "Carol of the Drum") is a popular Christmas carol written by the American classical music composer Katherine Kennicott Davis in 1941. First recorded in 1951 by the Trapp Family Singers, the song was popularized by a 1958 recording by the Harry Simeone Chorale…In the lyrics, the singer describes how, as a poor young boy, he was summoned by the Magi to the Nativity of Jesus. Without a gift for the Infant Christ, the little drummer boy played his drum with Jesus’ mother, Mary’s favor; saying, “I played my best for him” and "He smiled at me."

May we each long for and live out a "drummer-boy-faith"! Cause every beat of our heart to be our "finest gift
" to You. May we live in the rhythm of Your Spirit, saying over and over and over, in thought, word, and deed, "We love You! We love You! We love You!" Be pleased with our life-song, dear Lord and Savior. Amen.
