The Violin Maker

From sweet to sour

After putting the finishing touches on an especially fine violin, he then crafted an elegant bow.

What sweet music they made together!


One day, however, their “music” sounded more like a screech.

“I don’t like what I hear,” said the Violin Maker. “What’s wrong?”

“She rubs me the wrong way,” complained the violin.

“He’s so high-strung!” said the bow.

“Remember,” said the Violin Maker, “how beautiful you once sounded?” “Yes,” said the violin. “I remember,” sighed the bow.

“Why not treat each other the way you’d like to be treated? Try it for one week, and see if the music doesn’t come back again.”

From sour to sweet

It was hard, but by week’s end, they were playing sweet melodies together—happier than ever.

And so was their Maker.

(Genesis 2:18-24; Ephesians 5:22-33; 1 Peter 3:7)
