Why? According to the song, NOT because, “the big guy upstairs is really mean and he’s gonna get you if you step out of line.” Rather, as the song goes, because “your father up above is looking down in love.” Wow, in love! What great motivation to think twice about our words, actions, movies, songs, choices of all kinds.
The idea is borne out in the Bible. “For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.” (2 Chron. 16:9)
