The ultra famous rocker “Prince” died today at the age of 57, of causes yet unknown. If you ever listened to pop radio in the 1980s, there’s a good chance you heard at least a few of his songs – “1999”, “When Doves Cry” & “Let’s Go Crazy”, to name a few. Prince was a very private and creative person. His religious leanings were probably in the Jehovah Witness persuasion & he didn’t really comply with anything institutional nor common. At one point, he changed his name to a symbol & that’s probably where I lost the plot with him.
While you can find plenty of things in his life that didn’t agree with you, he was nevertheless an innovative creator of a rare breed. Some of that creativity was bizarre but some of it was sheer genius.
While many of the people who read this blog may not be familiar with Prince, his premature death drives home the point that life is short. Let’s be certain to live with divine intentionality and pray for the people not only in our daily living but also for the people have platform and influence in today’s culture.
