O Lord, do good to those who are good, whose hearts are in tune with you. (Psalm 125:4, NLT)
I don’t exactly remember how this thought process started, but the other day I was thinking about tuning forks.
Tuning forks resonate at a particular, constant pitch. They don’t waver. They are stable. You can rely on getting the right pitch when you match yours to it.
I thought about God next, and I thought, He is constant. He is stable. He doesn’t vary or waver. He changes not. His Son Jesus is just like Him, the same yesterday, today and forever. And His pitch, His tone, His constant resonance is Love.
David, who was a man after God’s own heart, spoke of those whose hearts are in tune with God, Who is love.
If the pitch that we listen for, watch for and order our lives by is His Love, our hearts will be in tune with His.
I think of tuning in a radio station. Tune into the frequency of love, God’s love, agape, checed, God’s unfailing, unconditional love and your heart will be in tune with His. And your life will become a song of love that draws the lost and broken to Love Himself.
