A few months ago, my son Jameson asked me a sobering question. I was reminded of it last night.
Newsong came to FBC with their Christmas Tour again (and all the groups were incredible). Jameson got to sing Christmas Shoes with them on stage – it made this dad proud. But Jameson is always excelling (musically, academically, athletically, and even spiritually).
Yes, I may be bragging, but I’m getting to something – I promise.
I am very proud of him. I love him. I would do anything I could for him.
And that takes me back to the question.
We had just finished our nightly prayers, and he looked at me and said, “Dad, you know how Abraham had a son and God asked him to sacrifice him? Would you do that?”
Now I think I answered properly, but I will admit that the answer was a struggle.
When we are pressed to give a good “Christian” answer, we can typically give the acceptable Sunday School answer. But what would your heart say?
What does that say about our hearts?
