Get It Through Your Head—You Don’t Love God If You Don’t Love Your Neighbor

I got a haircut not so long ago.

My barber often plays DVD’s of Bluegrass Gospel singers while I am getting my haircut.

A song he played a few months ago that stuck with me was called ” You Don’t Love God If You Don’t Love Your Neighbor.” This song is performed by a woman named Rhonda Vincent.

Here is Ms. Vincent’s website.

I don’t know anything about bluegrass music, but I do enjoy this song. I think it should be sung at church.

Here are some of the lyrics—

There are many people
who will say they’re Christians
and they live like Christians on the Sabbath day

But come Monday morning, til the coming Sunday
They will fight their neighbor all along the wayOh you don’t love God, if you don’t love your neighbor

if you gossip about him, if you never have mercy
if he gets into trouble, and you don’t try to help him
then you don’t love your neighbor, and you don’t love God

That’s right!

Here is a link to a video of Ms. Vincent singing this song.

I’m not at a fan of Bluegrass music. I have nothing against it—I’ve  just never paid attention.

Here is a history of Bluegrass music.

The International Bluegrass Music Museum is in Owensboro, Kentucky.

It is good to learn about something new, and it is good when some aspect of life you had not much considered before offers something rewarding.
