Pirates for Jesus
This is a conversation I had with Rocket last night before he went to bed. We were singing 'Jesus Loves Me' (as we usually do) and when we got to the part that says "He is strong" Rocket asked:
"Why is Jesus strong?"
I said, "Because he made everything."
He said "Oh, did he make pirates?"
"well... he made people, and some people become pirates."
"Did he make me?"
"Yes, he sure did!"
"Oh... then can I become a pirate?"
"Well, I guess you could."
He says, "What do I have to do to become a pirate?"
I replied, "Well you would have to have a big ship and live on the ocean and say 'arrrrrgh'"
"Oh! Well, if I were a pirate I would not love Jesus and he would not be in my heart" he said.
"cause pirates are bad."
"well, if you were a pirate, you would be good right?"
"Pirates can be good??"
"Yes, they can be good too."
"Ok, than I will be a good pirate- a pirate for Jesus."
What a better goal than to be a pirate for Jesus?? I hope I can find a shirt that says 'Pirates for Jesus'. I will buy it for Rocket.
