“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23-24
The Little Drummer Boy may be a fictional character, but his story is one of faith, humility, and love.
“Come, they told me, pa rum pum pum pum”
There was a newborn King to see. His fellow travellers were bringing their finest gifts and he had no gift to bring that he felt was worthy to give a King. He was expected to bring his finest gifts too, but he was a poor boy with only a drum. He failed to see that the drum was the very gift that God had given him. God gave him the ability to present a special gift to the newborn King – one that only he could give.
“I played my best for him, pa rum pum pum pum”
God gives us our talents, our skills and our gifts, so we can serve Him. He gives us our “drums”. He desires for us to come to Him and play these drums. He wants us to play our best for Him.
“Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum”
When we use the gifts that God has given us to serve Him – when we play our drums,when we play our best – He smiles at us too.
“Me and my drum”
What is your “drum?”
Are you playing your best for Him?
