Teach Us to Care

So, as God’s own chosen people, who are holy [set apart, sanctified for His purpose] and well-beloved [by God Himself], put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience [which has the power to endure whatever injustice or unpleasantness comes, with good temper]bearing graciously with one another, and willingly forgiving each other if one has a cause for complaint against another; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so should you forgive. Beyond all these things put on and wrap yourselves in [unselfish] love, which is the perfect bond of unity [for everything is bound together in agreement when each one seeks the best for others]. | Colossians 3:12-14

Teach Us to Care

Verse 1
Have you ever wondered why we seem to be
So well-connected, yet tangle-free?
Nobody digging down deep to the hearts
To ask the questions even when it is hard…

Verse 2
Maybe instead of going across the globe
We could share a meal, send a note
Look in the eyes of the people you’re with
Take out the earbuds, demand noise to quit.

Chorus
Jesus, teach us to care,
To lean into the life
That You’ve given everywhere.
Jesus, teach us to care.

Verse 3
It takes more effort to be “all there”
To be open and willing your burdens to share
We do all we want in the name of the Lord,
But if it’s all for show then back to the drawing board…

Chorus
Jesus, teach us to care,
To lean into the life
That You’ve given everywhere.
Jesus, teach us to care.
