God, why don’t you do something?

I love the new song by Matthew West, “Do Something”. In it, a man is surveying all the problems of this world.. Poverty, homelessness, slavery.. And outraged, he shouts out to God, “God, why don’t you do something??” and God’s response is, “I did. I created you.”

Let that sink in for a minute. I did. I created you. Many times we look to God wondering why he’s not taking action, but he’s looking at us wondering the same thing. He’s saying, “Let your heart be broken over what breaks Mine. Be my hands and feet. Love people the way I’ve shown you love. Be merciful to people the way I’ve shown you mercy. Grant people grace the way I’ve granted you grace.” He knows humanity’s hurting. And he’s saying, “Get out there and do something.”
