We were listening to a good Brandon Heath song which has a lyric that says to God, “gimme Your eyes so I can see.”
After I explained Who Brandon Heath was singing/speaking to in this song, my five year old said, “Then, he needs to say ‘Please’.”
How often do we approach God with the wrong attitude and spirit of demanding God do something for us?
Brandon Heath is likely NOT intending this type of attitude in his song. Nonetheless, a five year old’s interpretation of it is that we should always approach God with reverence and respect. I agree.
