04. Love Is Still A Worthy Cause

Tell Me What You Know
by Sara Groves



 

Have you listed all the times you've tried
Do you call on all your alibis
When somebody asks the question why are you hiding

did you feel the pull, did you hear a call
did you take a chance and lose it all
do you fear there's no collateral left for trying

Friend I know your heart is raw
But love is still a worthy cause
Picking up and pressing on
Oh love is still a worthy cause
It's the touch that starts the thaw
Love is still a worthy cause
or the word that breaks the pause
Love

It's the beauty in the tales we tell
It's the pushing through and ending well
and finding strength to give ourselves away

in the midst of passing bravery
in the face of our own injury
It's the constant generosity of grace

Friend I know your heart is raw
But love is still a worthy cause
Picking up and pressing on
Oh love is still a worthy cause
It's the touch that starts the thaw
Love is still a worthy cause
or the word that breaks the pause
Love

I love because he loved me
when I had nothing
I love because he loved me
when I had nothing
I love because he loved me
when I had nothing




Behind the Song:
"My friend Greg went to Africa with a team of 12 businessmen who wanted to identify future African leaders that they could pour financial and educational resources into. They wanted to invest in people who would make a long-term difference in Uganda. On their last day a World Vision representative took them into the jungle as far as they could go. They got out of the car, and everyone was animated, excited about the trip and how they were going to change the world. When they arrived at this very remote village, they realized that AIDS had killed the entire adult population, an entire generation of parents. All that was left was a group of children being led by a 17-year-old girl. These men were just speechless. As fathers, their hearts went out to these kids. Soon it began to rain, and the children huddled inside these roofless huts against the wall, trying to stay dry. My friend didn’t remember who started it, but one of the guys took off his jacket and wrapped it around one of those kids. The other men immediately began to do the same, removing whatever clothing might give these children some shelter. As they hiked out, it was completely silent. All their plans to change the world... When they got back, they began a discussion. Over half these kids were likely infected and dying so do we still invest here? The resounding answer was yes. God calls us to love, and love is still a worthy cause. It is worthwhile to do something simply because you love somebody and because that’s what God did for us. In the end they were not motivated by “cost effectiveness” or “sustainable growth” but by love." - Sara Groves
