Give me your eyes


Brandon Heath - Give Me Your Eyes from Brandon Heath on Vimeo.

I was hungry,
And you formed a humanities group to discuss my hunger.

I was imprisoned,
And you crept off quietly to your chapel and prayed for my release.

I was naked,
And in your mind you debated the morality of my appearance.

I was sick,
And you knelt and thanked God for your health.

I was homeless,
And you preached a sermon on the spiritual shelter of the love of God.

I was lonely,
And you left me alone to pray for me.

You seem so holy, so close to God
But I am still very hungry – and lonely – and cold.

Thanks to Jonathan Brink and Alan Knox for pointing out the two shared pieces above. As Jonathan says on his blog, "this song is best heard loud and with headphones on." I agree.

I've been guilty of all of the above. Yes, I need to see others with the same loving eyes that God sees us with. Thanks.

Let me just say Guy as someone out on the field you are putting it on the line. Much love to you.
