SLA meets SLA For Musical Enlightenment
On Tuesday, April 2, 2013, the bell choir and vocal choir from Sandy Lake Academy in Bedford, Nova Scotia came to South Lancaster Academy to perform a set list as part of their tour. The assembly came as a surprise to many members of the faculty and the students. Fortunately it was a good surprise.
Sandy Lake Academy opened up with three musical selections from their bell choir followed by many songs performed by their vocal choir. Throughout the performance there were inspiring passages read by the students of both choirs, giving the complete performance a running time of about an hour and a half.
South Lancaster was truly blessed by the musical talent provided from Sandy Lake Academy, and wished them luck on the remainder of their tour.
In Matthew chapter 25, Jesus tells a story about a king that gave a certain amount of talents to three of his servants. The first one received five, who then worked with them and invested in them, which resulted in the gaining of five more. The second servant who received two followed in the footsteps of the first servant, and was able to gain two more. The last servant received one, in fear he would lose it, buried it in the ground and produced no profit. When the king returned he praised and rewarded the first two servants, and punished the last servant for doing nothing, and his talent was taken away.
The moral of the story is that God gave each of us different talents that we could do amazing things with. Even of we aren’t the best at something God still wants us to work at it, and with hard work and dedication they will be multiplied, but if we do nothing they will be taken away. In 1 Corinthians 10:31 it tells us,” so whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
Use your talents and watch the blessings your bestowed when you use them to the glory of God.
