"Run, Rabbit, Run" - - by Rev. Weldon Bares

April 26, 2018



     In 1973, Pink Floyd released their classic album, “Dark Side of the Moon.” It is considered by many to be one of the greatest albums of all time.

    The album has a song by David Gilmour and Roger Waters entitled, “Breathe.” It has some haunting lyrics:
Breathe, breathe in the air

Don't be afraid to care
Leave but don't leave me
Look around and choose your own ground
Run, rabbit, run
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down, it's time to dig another one

    That sure seems like an accurate picture of my life at times. Maybe that is true for you also. We seem to be constantly running around. Perpetual motion. For so many of us, it is truly run, rabbit, run.

    Doctors have told us that this lifestyle of run, rabbit, run is not very healthy. It certainly isn’t fun. It is not spiritually sound.

    There is an answer to our frantic scurrying around. It is found in the One who said, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life span? Consider the lilies, how they grow. They neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” (Matthew 6: 27-28)

    So today, slow down. Consider the lilies. Breathe. Look in faith to the Lord.
