Funny how things hit you as a kid. When I was maybe 9 or 10 years old, a reading in the middle of a song on an album my parents listened to from time to time grabbed me. The reading was not quite a poem and not quite a story. But, as a boy, it inspired me. I loved the imagery and hope it brought to my heart and mind.
The song was by the Gaither Trio and was titled, "There's Something About That Name." The reading in the middle of the sweet and simple song got my attention and inspired my imagination. Over the years, the passage of Scripture that has done the same thing in my heart and mind in regards to the name of "Jesus" is Philippians 2:5-11. That text speaks of the humility, love, and hope found in our Savior's name. All of that comes out in the reading written by Gloria Gaither and presented by her in the middle of the song.
To this day, I listen to the song on Spotify from time to time and get moved by what she wrote and reads. Let the words of her piece grab your heart today:
