Do you listen to Christian radio? I do. It’s not the only genre of music I listen to, but it’s the majority. The problem I have with Christian radio is that, like most pop stations, it will play a song into the ground. You get a good song, like “Open the Eyes of My Heart,” and people connect with it. Then the song is played 500 times in a one month period & people start to get aggrevated with it. So songs that we really liked before, we’re just sick of now.
But here’s the kicker….
When one of those over-played songs come on the radio, I roll my eyes and turn it off. Then I start to feel guilty. I start thinking, “Hey, the message is still good. It still says what my heart says.” So I turn it back on. Then I remember why I turned it off in the first place. No matter how good the message is, I’m still sick of the song.
And that’s okay. You know, when David was playing the harp for King Saul, I bet he didn’t play the same song over and over again. And if he did, maybe that played a small part in why Saul decided to kill him. I’m just saying, is all.
