Give Me Your Eyes – Brandon Heath Christian Music Video
“Give Me Your Eyes” by Brandon Heath
I love this song and the message…
How much this world would change for the better if we all began to pray that God open our eyes and hearts to see the needs of those around us! And that we then take action…
This fast paced world of today, with all the technology that allows us to be so connected, still seems to have us running in circles – all consumed with ourselves and disconnected… not noticing those hurting around us.
Several years ago, there was an older man, who was semi-retired and started working part-time at the same company I was at. Soon after we met I kept getting this tugging inside me to invite him to church. But I kept putting it off and about two months after he started working there he took his life.
When I hear songs like this it reminds me that God is trying to get our attention – to look beyond ourselves – and to not only see the needs of others, but to have a heart of compassion that makes us actually do something.
How hard is the simple act of inviting someone to church? Especially if we feel the urge to invite someone specific and see they are in need. I do not know if I had invited my co-worker, if the outcome would have been different. All I know is I was supposed to do my part and I didn’t… and I regret that now.
Tomorrow is a new day. And we have new opportunities to do something as simple as give a smile and a kind compliment to someone – who knows what a difference that may make in their life!
May our eyes and hearts be opened with compassion to reach out in love to others.
God bless you,
