Whose Song are You Singing?

Take a look at this clip from "Walk the Line," (sit through the ad) and listen to Sam Phillips seeking something genuine from Johnny Cash.

Then ask yourself if what you are "singing" every day is real and true, or whether you are only performing one or more of those old Jimmy Davis tunes (what you think everyone wants to hear).

Sam Phillips had his view of what saves people, and Johnny Cash sang his own song:  Folsom Prison Blues.

Howard Thurman made the same observation as Phillips, in a little different way:

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
