Too Many Notes

Scripture reading

The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
–Genesis 1:7

Thought of the Day

A number of years ago, there was a movie about the brilliant composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In one of the scenes, the young composer introduced some new music to an audience that included the Emperor Joseph. The new Work featured several musical innovations that seemed to startle Mozart’s listeners. When it was over, many of them, including the Emperor himself, told young Amadeus that the music had too many notes. It was true. Mozart had created melodic lines that were far more complex than anything that had come before. He had created an entirely new era in music composition. Amazingly, he had composed music, which was impossible to play on instruments then in existence. Mozart, a creative genius, envisioned and orchestrated works so new and revolutionary that new instruments had to be invented to perform them.
Are you thinking what I am thinking? Old Wolfgang was not the first creative genius that envisioned a revolutionary plan where something new had to be created in order to complete that plan. I am glad that God didn’t decide that there were too many notes in His masterpiece, called earth.


Creator of All, Thank you for including me in your plan. Amen.
