Best. Post. Ever.

Thanks Tim for a great post and an amazing insight. I pray that my heart will be moved like that of a little child. My my heart break for what breaks the heart of God.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the comment Michael. It was one of those spontaneous timeless conversations that make so much of the hard work of parenting pay off. I can only pray that we'll have more of these times together. Peace to you.

Hey Tim...
the dialog between you and your son reminds me of the one Erwin McManus tells about in The Barbarian Way: "Daddy, I wish I had a billion dollars so I could give it all away."
"That's good honey, but what about you? You need to keep a little for yourself so you can buy food and clothes and things."
"No daddy you don't understand. I want a billion dollars just so I can give it ALL away. Why would I want a billion dollars?"

there's more but it's such a good reminder. thanks for sharing!
