Do Something!

If not us, then who?
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something!
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain?
It’s not enough to do nothing.
It’s time for us to do something!!

Matthew West was shouting these words at me when my clock went off this morning. It’s a pretty edgy song and an eye-opener for sure. Listen to Do Something

My Bible study this morning was on the love of God, how nothing… Absolutely NOTHING… can separate us from the love of Christ. And if I have His love in me, if I call myself a Christian, then it’s time for ME to do something. Between the song and the scripture this morning, I have no choice.

So what can I do?

LOVE others any way I know how
Pray for and with others whether they want me to or not
Give what I have when I can
Tithe whether I think I can or not
Teach others about God’s love, teach music
Serve my church, my family, my community, the world around me
Feed others through Soups on Us, Salvation Army
Share God’s love, my heart, my time, my home
SEE the need! Keep my eyes and ears open to the hurt around me

It’s a start. Even if I pick one thing every day, I’m doing something instead of nothing. I’m doing something instead of talking about doing something. God, open my eyes, my ears, my heart and my mind to the world around me… To what You have to say to me, to what You would have me DO. Today. Right now. It’s time for ME to do something!
