Music and the Gospel: “Rockabye,” Clean Bandit ft. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie

Jesus heals Peter’s mother-in-law and everyone who crowds his doorway; then he goes on to another village to proclaim the good news of God’s nearness.  This is the same Jesus who loves and stands by us.  The song “Rockabye” is about how people who love give us strength.

Key Lyrics: She tells him “ooh love” / No one’s ever gonna hurt you, love / I’m gonna give you all of my love / Nobody matters like you (stay up there, stay up there) / She tells him “your life ain’t gonna be nothing like my life (straight) / You’re gonna grow and have a good life / I’m gonna do what I’ve got to do” (yeah)

Questions: When you are making a difficult decision, how do the people around you help you? How do they challenge you? How do they support you?  How do you handle pressure that threatens your values?  Where do you think our world needs healing?
