Missing the point of reading, studying, and singing

"You have received unmerited love and grace. Share it—or quit reading, studying, and singing about it." 
—Pastor Glenn Kaiser (pictured above)


Sometimes we get so caught up in the activities of reading, studying, singing, etc., we end up missing the point.


But that's precisely the point: Don't miss the point.

I dare you to think about your life for a moment: 
Are YOU missing the point? 

I challenge you to assess yourself by checking out this, this, and this.

Meanwhile, I'll be busy taking my own challenge.



Added Bonus: 
Glenn Kaiser making the same point above—only this time via the blues! Take a listen. Lyrics included below. (Get Glenn's music here and here.)

She came into your life
One look stole your heart
Your friends can see it in your face
Even in the dark
You laid awake at night
Dreamin' of the day
When she would wear your ring
And that evidence would say

You know I love you
I'm so glad, show and tell
Cause when your love is so strong
You just can't keep it to yourself

They hung me on the wood
My blood ran just like rain
I spoke on your behalf
And I'm comin' down again

You know I love you
They know in heaven and in hell
You say you love me
Why do you keep it to yourself?

People in the street,
They need to see and hear
Got noses full of cocaine
And bellies full o' beer
Credit cards and pretty yards
And kids that never knew
Who I am, and what I've done
And what I'll do for you

You say you love me
Ahh, you got my book up on the shelf
You say you love me
Ohh, if you love me
Why do you keep it to yourself?
Ohh, if you love me
Ahh, you gotta show and tell
Cause when your love is so strong
You just can't...
When your love is so strong
You just can't keep it to yourself


And this BONUS is only for those who diligently read this far... something to put a smile on your face AND sum up everything this post is about... enjoy...
