The Luckiest People

By JMathis

Barbra Streisand may have hit on something profound about “luck” when she sang “People Who Need People”. Perhaps we create our own luck when we express God’s love to our family, friends and community. When we forego mistrust for love, we create situations and interactions that are brimming with life, rather than struggle, as we love one another and learn to depend on each other in the same way God loves us.

Next to loving the Lord God with everything within you, the second greatest command that Jesus taught was to love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:39).

Change your “luck” today by loving and trusting those around you.

People Who Need People

Sung by Barbra Streisand

Written by Jule Stein and Bob Merrill

Introduced in ‘Funny Girl

People who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world.
There’s children needing other children
And yet letting our grown up pride
Hide all the need inside
Acting more like children, than children.

Lovers are very special people
They’re the luckiest people in the world
With one person, one very special person
A feeling deep in your soul
That said you were half and now you’re whole

No more hunger and thirst
But first be a person who needs people
People who need people
Are the luckiest people
In the world
