Thoughtful Thursday – Less Like Me

Last Sunday we started the service with the music video “Less Like Me” by Zach Williams. Cyndy noted that the song goes perfectly with our sermon “Fruit of the Spirit” sermon series and that you might want to look up and reflect on the lyrics. I couldn’t agree more so I’m saving you the trouble of looking it up and posting the video HERE as well as posting the lyrics below. If you enjoyed this song, I encourage you to listen to more of Zach Williams music. Just ask siri or alexa to “Play songs by Zach Williams.”

Less Like Me ~ Zach Williams

Verse 1

Oh I have days I lose the fight
Try my best but just don’t get it right
Where I talk a talk that I don’t walk
And miss the moments right before my eyes


Somebody with a hurt that I could have helped
Somebody with a hand that I could have held
When I just can’t see past myself
Lord help me be


A little more like mercy, A little more like grace
A little more like kindness goodness love and faith
A little more like patience, A little more like peace
A little more like Jesus, A little less like me

Verse 2

Yeah there’s no denying I have changed
I’ve been saved from who I used to be
But even at my best I must confess
I still need help to see the way You see


Oh to feed the beggar on the street
Love to be Your hands and feet
Freely give what I receive
Lord help me be

I want to put You first above all else
Love my neighbor as myself
In the moments no one sees
Lord help me be


A little more I’m living
Everything I preach
A little more like Jesus
A little less like me
