This morning on my way into work, I heard a song that I’ve heard many times before, but today, it really spoke to me.
Matthew West sings about all the injustice and pain in the world from poverty to kids being sold into slavery, and he relates how so many people feel when they see these kinds of things. He sings about looking up to heaven and shaking his fist and saying, “GOD, WHY DON’T YOU DO SOMETHING?”
Have you ever felt that way?
I think we all have.
But I got chills as the song goes on to give us what must be God’s likely response when we ask him things like that…
“I did. I created you.”
West also sings about how he’s tired of hearing about how we are to be the hands and feet of Jesus. That obviously couldn’t be more true, as we are his living representatives here in the physical realm. But West’s point is well taken. It’s a lot easier to say that we are his hands and feet than to actually be them.
I’m challenged today to tune in and be certain that I’m answering this call. I want to be the one who stands up and says I’m going to do something.
How about you?
