Song of the Week: “Courageous” by Casting Crowns

It just doesn’t end.  Every single band that I’ve ever loved is coming out with a new album this fall, it seems, and Casting Crowns is no exception.  Their new single, “Courageous”, is a call to the men of our generation to step up and take charge, to be men of courage, men who aren’t satisfied to sit back and watch when they could be making a difference – and a reminder that the only way to truly fulfill our calling in life is in the strength of God.  We were made to be courageous, but so many men today choose the coward’s way out, living lives of irresponsibility and apathy, and it’s tearing them and their families apart.  Something has to change, and we as men have to be the ones to do it, to buck the trend and make things right.  Casting Crowns has never shied away from using strong words to address important issues, and this anthem for true manhood is another great link in that proud tradition.  Lyrics and music video after the break.  Enjoy!
