Amanda and I saw Third Eye Blind on Saturday. It was supposed to be the B-52's but they cancelled and Third Eye Blind stepped in. It was fun to go and see some live music. I'm not a huge fan of Third Eye Blind but I know enough of their material to enjoy myself. Not my favorite live concert experience but glad I got to see some live music.
That's not the point of this blog.
I was struck with a thought while people watching during the show. As a people, we were made for worship. As I watched people sing their hearts out, with arms out raised as they sung along to songs about hurt, pain, depression, getting high, and the best nights of their lives, I was sad. As I watched people around me it was like watching a worship service where there was no hope. People pouring their hearts out in songs of despair.
We were made to worship to the Creator but without knowing the Creator, we worship other things. imagine that passion, energy, and intensity put into the things of God; towards bringing hope, peace, reconciliation, justice, and love. We were made to be in relationship with God and worship him.
