Eleonor Rigby

This was a song we listened to in class that tied in with The Weight of Glory. It had a sad, slow tune. The chorus was about all the lonely people around us. The Weight of Glory talked about laying the burden of our neighbors’ glory on our back daily. In order to carry this heavy load, we must have great humility. We look for community in our church, home, and school because we need our friends to support us through our daily struggles. Another thing that I learned from this song was that we must also glorify God in the little things that we do. The widow in this song gathered grains of rice. Whatever our position in this life is, it must be used to the glory of God.
