It doesn’t matter what I’ve done or will do, I can safely guarantee there will never be a hymn “To Bob Be The Glory”. The funny and very ironic thing is, I do so many things in this life acting as if that is what I am trying to do! This hymn is a lesson that only God can claim glory. I can get in the way or I can help further God’s purposes, but striving for my own goals in this life will yield no glory. Respect from others is fleeting if it is there at all, and trying to get it will only annoy others. I need this hymn to remind me of that.
PS: That’s the end of my requests list, so send me some favorites!
