I should come clean to you about something this morning.Something Alan has known for a long time…I am a country music fan.So much so that often – there is a song in my head thatcorresponds with a particular Gospel story. Today – the song is “Something Worth Leaving Behind”. LeeAnn Womack, 2002.In the video, Womack sits in a busy train station – people arerushing around – doing work, isolated. Not paying attentionto each other.In the song – Lee Ann sings about some famous folks –Mozart, Midas, and Elvis to name a few. Then she says – I may not go down in history, I just wantsomeone to remember me. I’ll probably never hold the brushthat paints a masterpiece. I’ll probably never find a pen thatwrites a symphony.But if I will love then I will find, that I have touched anotherlife and that’s something worth leaving behind.I’m reminded of this song because of all of the
thatthis Soul we heard about left behind. Unintentionally.And…how useless and vain that process was.In our story, the “Soul” was too concerned about storingthings up to consider anything else…thus not leavinganything particularly worthwhile behind.
