Entertaining Strangers

We were preparing for a Sunday school promotion program.
Everybody had apparently experienced a hard day at work because the atmosphere among the teachers was negative and dark.

One teacher in particular was very angry, rude and impatient with everyone, students, teachers and parents! Her harsh criticism of everything and everybody was painful and hurtful.

I wondered what kind of atmosphere we would bring the next day before the church if we were in such discord.

We began to pray that God would quickly intervene in this situation.

After a few minutes we looked up and four strangers walked into the auditorium.
They must have come in at street level, found their way to the elevator and came up to where we were rehearsing. How they got past security I don’t know.

The three women were dressed in medieval type clothing with long skirts and vests and peasant blouses. The man had on a vest also with scrolled needlework on it. They looked like Troubadours.
I thought immediately that they were messengers and was very relieved to see them.

They approached us and asked if they could borrow our piano.
The negative woman said, “They want to borrow our piano?! We are rehearsing! Who are these people?”

We were all embarrassed by her rudeness.
The musical group just smiled politely at her.

Surprisingly the leader of our group said “Yes!”
The rude teacher stomped to the back of the room and leaned against the door in anger.

The group began to play the most beautiful lilting praise music.
After a while we all sat down to listen.
Along with our piano, they also had a vintage violin and other hand held string instruments.

The atmosphere of the meeting changed. Even the unhappy, rude teacher became quiet and reflective.

After a while they thanked us for the use of our piano and prepared to leave.

Someone asked them why they stopped by our church that day.

The man replied that they were in the neighborhood and just decided to stop by to say hello.

We have never seen them since.

Psalm 144:9
I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

In 1 Samuel 16 David’s skillful musical songs of praise refreshed Saul and gave him a more peaceful and joyful attitude.
