Nothing annoys an on stage guitarist more than finding his instrument out of tune! All the strings need to be perfectly tuned to a reference. And so do our lives.
One out-of-tune guitar string can ruin a song. If you are playing together as a band, it can affect everyone else too. You need a reference, like a tuner to tune a guitar. And when it's done, how beautiful it sounds!
The world today celebrates relativism. Maxims like - If it feels good, then just do it! or Follow your heart! are popular mantras. Sounds great but a big problem with that surfaces if the one holding on to these mantras is a terrorist or rapist! So whether we like it or not, just like a guitar tuner, we too need a reference for our morality.
God’s word, the Bible, says that every man is born in sin and is naturally inclined towards evil. We often tend to choose the most selfish option even though we know that it may harm someone else.
So the heart of the human problem is the problem of the human heart.
Only Jesus, who was God in human form, lived a perfect life without sin. He is our model, our reference. He invites us to tune our lives to His standards. He is willing to forgive our sins and give us a brand new start. The Bible says that God will give us the desire and the resources to do good, if we just ask Him.
So may the Bible be your heart’s tuner and Jesus, the reference for your soul!
