Colin's Wise Wednesday - 28th August 2019

Colin’s saying it in a song this week …

Lyn and I are always on the “lookout” for something relevant to say in our weekly devotion. This message came unexpectedly while listening to LM radio. For our younger readers LM radio was “THE” radio station in the sixties and seventies. For Lyn and I it still is.  They played “Can we get to that”  which I hadn’t heard for ages and the message hit home anew striking a cord deep within. I think the lines that made me cringe the most were “Well we can get to church on Sunday and sing about brotherly love, but can we roll up our sleeves and start the work that must be done?”

I hope and pray that the words of this song will resonate with each and every one of us.

Let’s pray: Please Father, as we read these words I pray that they will resonate within each and every one of us and I pray that we won’t only read or hear these words but that we will respond, respond to Your call. We can make a difference in this world. Let’s “roll up our sleeves and start the work that must be done”. Please God show us the way. In Jesus name we pray. Amen

 

CAN WE GET TO THAT by RAY STEVENS (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0z6Cr1-xf0)

 

We can get to the treasures at the bottom of the sea

We can get to the moon and back and watch it on TV

But we can we get to the people who are lost and deceived

Can we get to the point where we can give and not receive

 

CHORUS:

Can we get to that, Can we get to that

Do we really know where it’s at

Can we get to that

If we can, peace on earth may become reality

There just might be a place in Heaven for you and me

 

We can get to the lunch appointment at that restaurant downtown

We can get to the sea shore when vacation rolls around

But can we get to that little boy that has no food to eat

Can we get to that little girl with no shoes on her feet

 

CHORUS

 

Is everybody happy do you like the world to see

Or is your brother somewhere crying out for love and charity

Well we can get to church on Sunday and sing about brotherly love

But can we roll up our sleeves and start the work that must be done

Can we face the bitter with the sweet until the battles won

 

Can we get to that

If we can, peace on earth may become reality

There just might be, there just might be a place in Heaven for you and me.
