Mixtapes originated in the ‘60s and became popular in the ‘80s especially among youth who created them as gifts for others, with songs carefully selected to convey a message. Today, people of all ages make compilations or playlists to suit every occasion, such as driving, working out, studying and celebrating, or to voice a mood. Yet, this is not a modern practice. The greatest mixtape of all time is tucked inside our Bible, King David’s mixtape and Israel’s hymn book—the book of Psalms. David felt and understood the breadth and depth of all human feelings in all situations and was able to create a collection of songs that speak to a person’s various emotions, and give them expression. Because David’s mixtape captures every aspect of our life with God, it is a gift to all people for all time. David’s mixtape translates into a mixtape for everyone.
