“God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.” I Corinthians 1:27. A renowned violinist announced before a concert that he would play one of the world’s most expensive violins. After playing it, the musician smashed the instrument. The audience was horrified – that is, until the violinist explained that he had been playing a cheap violin. Then, picking up the expensive instrument, the virtuoso began to draw the bow across the strings. The sound was beautiful, but most of the people couldn’t tell any difference. The quality of the instrument was secondary to the skill of the violinist. It’s something like that in our service for the Lord. The Master can take ordinary instruments like us and produce beautiful music from our lives. Our service is not so much dependent on us as it is on Him. Like that cheap violin, we can be instruments in the Master’s hands to magnify the Lord and bring blessing to others.
