Poetry and music are two of my favorite art forms. I love the psalms because they are a combination of poetry and song written to and about my favoritest favorite in all of existence. God is my all time favorite of all. Psalms are a way to share about the lovely and amazing, I love them. What many don't consider is that psalms are also to be shared with each other.
Psalm 47:7 (Amplified Bible)7
For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises in a skillful psalm and with understanding.
Ephesians 5:19 (Amplified Bible)19
Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord,
Colossians 3:16 (Amplified Bible)16
Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts.
