Song For Sunday: (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
This Rolling Stones hit was mentioned in the sermon this morning and so found it's way here as today's "Song for Sunday."
The sermon was based on Psalm 131:
A song of ascents. Of David.
1 My heart is not proud,Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. 2 But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.
3 Israel, put your hope in the Lord both now and forevermore.
It reminded us that God is our only source of true satisfaction. Mick Jagger's lyrics talk about the real and the phony, and make the right point, though without intentionally pointing us to the real God. Not getting satisfaction is a reality in this world.
Oh, right and it's a fun song to listen, too. Here's a link to some facts about it.
