Excitedly, he ran over and sat comfortably on my knee. I looked at him with wonder and asked, “Son where did you learn that word and just what does it mean?" With a knowing look and handsome smile, Chris said, “from school Mama, and diligently means working hard to complete a task.” It seems like I was often shocked and amazed with the depth of this young child’s vocabulary. But, this comment really blew me away! Why, Chris could even recite fifty books of the Bible in order yet he could not read! Christian daycare was working wonders with my child and I was so proud of him. What a melody of words he was learning.
Just out of curiosity, I looked up the word melody in the dictionary and this is what I discovered. Melody means a sweet or agreeable succession or arrangement of sound. This child’s choice of words had become a melody as I recalled asking him repeatedly to recite these learned books of the Bible to friends and family. God generously gifted Chris with a sweet spirit and the ability to understand words and know how to use them properly—a gift recognized at a very young age. Spoken words, just as lyrics sang often can quickly become music to the ear or sweet melody, don’t you agree?
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
