I got a haircut not so long ago.
My barber often plays DVD’s of Bluegrass Gospel singers while I am getting my haircut.
A song he played a few months ago that stuck with me was called “You Don’t Love God If You Don’t Love Your Neighbor.” This song is performed by a woman named Rhonda Vincent.
Here are some of the lyrics—
There are many people
who will say they’re Christians
and they live like Christians on the Sabbath day
But come Monday morning, til the coming Sunday
They will fight their neighbor all along the wayOh you don’t love God, if you don’t love your neighbor
if you gossip about him, if you never have mercy
if he gets into trouble, and you don’t try to help him
then you don’t love your neighbor, and you don’t love God
I’m not at a fan of Bluegrass music. I have nothing against it—I’ve just never paid attention.
It is good to learn about something new, and it is good when some aspect of life you had not much considered before offers something rewarding.
