I like when I’m reading, and I feel an Ally McBeal moment…where I’m picturing things in my head. That was the case, while reading Roman’s chapter 12. I came to a piece of verse 9, and I went …
Hmmm. And I started humming a tune…
Let love be without hypocrisy. – Romans 12:9
I wonder if this was the inspiration for Lenny Kravitz’s song, “Let Love Rule.” He is said to identify as Jewish and Christian. Many of his songs are Faith based. Maybe he tried it out…
“You got to LET love BE…”
(wait, that doesn’t flow)
oh, “You got to LET love RULE…”
(yeah, that’s it).
I’m pretty sure I’m not far off from how that all went down…
I believe this song was released in 1989, a year before I graduated high school. I ended up LOVING ME Lenny Kravitz. I own 3 or 4 cds. And, when he opened for David Bowie – I was at the Dodger Stadium eager to dance to Mr. Cab Driver, and I Built this Garden for us. He was CRAZY LOUD with huge guitar solos. (not my favorite) – with his dreadlocks – looking down…while moving his head around-n-round in circles – all we saw was hair flopping. But I still love his songs on the radio. He was a little much for me in concert.
AND his role on the Hunger Games as Cinna, the clothing designer! Those eyes!
Yes. I have crush on the mature version of Lenny….and letting love rule!
