The Koala Song

A koala eats certain gum tree leaves,
And it always eats the kind it knows it needs.
A Believer feeds on the Word of God
And knows no other bread will do.

About This Song:
I’ve been to Australia seven or eight times now and consider it my second home. On each of those trips I visited one or more animal parks where I could pet a koala and have my picture taken doing it.

Fascinating creatures.

No matter how lethargic they normally look, I actually once took video footage of a koala running on the ground and of another jumping from branch to branch. I still don’t believe it. They must be pretty healthy animals.

I may be wrong about this fact–the one I based “The Koala Song” on–but my understanding is that koalas are very picky about what they eat. Not only do they just eat gum tree (eucalyptus) leaves, but only certain kinds. They seem to have an instinct for knowing which ones are right for them–which ones are healthful.

As children of God, we know we should restrict our diets to certain kinds of influences. Some movies, TV shows, and books and periodicals are unhealthy for us as Christians. Better that we steer clear of them and feed on the Bible, the Bread of Life. That’s even healthier than feeding on books about the Bible.

Free lead sheets (lyrics, tune, and chords) are available for many of my songs. Click on the Lead Sheets tab at the top of this page to see whether one is available for this song.

Look for me again next Wednesday. Better still, subscribe to receive these weekly posts by email.

Best regards,
