Toby Mac Style

"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Mark 8:36

OK, so my son really likes to sing. He will sing any song he remembers from anything. Most of the time it is a Veggie Tale song from one of his videos... he's been stuck on the Star of Christmas for the last few weeks.

However, occasionally he will bust out a song he hears on the radio. We pretty much always listen to Air 1. (www.air1.com) and sometimes we will be hanging out at the house (or still in the car) and he will start singing one of the songs.

Last night, as he was taking his bath, he usually chills for 20-30 minutes playing with is sponge toys, and he started to sing. I ran to get the camera because the song he was singing is not one that we have on CD, he just heard it on the radio. It melted my heart... maybe it will melt yours too. He's almost 3 by the way.

The words he is singing are, "I don't want to gain the whole world and lose my soul." Praise the Lord, I hope he truly understands the words as he grows up. What an amazing responsibility a parent has to teach their children how to live for Christ.
