Today in our community Bible study that meets every Wednesday morning at a local Panera Bread, we were discussing Luke 18 where the clear implications of the chapter have to do with priorities and the disciples' total allegiance to Jesus. The discussion turned to how often we Christians let the world set our agenda for us and we lose sight of what's truly important. It brought to my mind Harry Chapin's song, "Cat's in the Cradle." I mentioned it and all of us who are "older" immediately related to it, much to the confusion of the younger ones gathered there.
In any case, the song has a great message and is a refreshing change from all the sappy, sentimental, and gushy love songs we constantly here in today's pop music.
The song is posted right below.

I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)
