Are the lyrics to Matthew West's song "Nothing Else" just nice words to give you a warm, spiritual feeling in church or at a concert?
To me, it seems like his lyrics provide the foundation and focus and purpose for living. It all starts with a lowest common denominator. If you miss this, then you've missed everything, according to my belief.
Then why is there so little conversation about what this looks like in real life? Other things seem to dominate the conversation about what brings happiness and peace. Or will it come with money, a job, health, the right political candidate or the right social connections? Listen to his lyrics. What do you think?
