Otherwise our Hearts are all Other Colors

DH was singing  "Before There Was Time" to DS3 tonight.  He was talking through with him the words of the song.  When they got to the line that said, "You purchased me back from the dead, "  DH was explaining what it meant to purchase something.

Daddy: So, it was very expensive for God to purchase us back.  It cost Jesus' blood.
Son: Jesus' blood makes our hearts clean.
Daddy: Yes, it does.
Son: It makes them white.
Daddy: You're right.
Son: Otherwise, our hearts are all other colors.

Thank you, Sunday School and Children's Church!  He's learning something somewhere!!! (for these were not things we had specifically talked about at home yet).

If only he knew how right he was - my heart is usually swimming with some shade of ugly brown.  Ah, but God looks at me and sees me through His Son's blood scarred body and He sees WHITE, pure beautiful WHITE.  How unworthy we are - Come, LORD Jesus! - so we can live fully in the beauty of WHITE!

  1. Way to go to R. and R.! (I don't know if you're sharing names here or not.) I think that's a great little lesson. And that's a great FFH song, too!
