The spiritual brilliance of Keri Hilson

Keri Hilson has a famous song called Knock You Down with Kanye West and Ne-Yo. Besides the natural catchy hooks, it has lyrics, especially the chorus that resembles part of the sermon on the mount.

Chorus

Sometimes love comes around
And it knocks you down
Just get back up
When it knocks you down
Sometimes love comes around
And it knocks you down
Just get back up
When it knocks you down

Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.

In order to mourn, it requires two things, Love & Loss. When we love, it is the very thing that sets us free. It is the pure essence of Christ. When we love we become more like him. When we lose it is so easy to become jaded, cynical and become a victim. So when we are knocked down when we lose something we love, and, we get back up, we are practicing what it truly means to be Christ.

So just remember,

Sometimes love comes around
And it knocks you down
Just get back up
When it knocks you down
