Conversation With Our Son

My 8 year old son and I had a conversation Sunday afternoon that reminded me of a Bible verse in 1 Corinthians.

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
He was laying on the sofa after talking Daddy into a nice long back scratch (he does take after me in some things) and this is how our conversation went:

Littlest Mr. "Momma, do you know what arms and legs and eyes are for?"

Me: "What do YOU think they are for."

Littlest Mr. "I think feet are to take you where God wants you to go. Arms are to do the work he wants you to do. Eyes are so you can see the people He wants you to tell about Him. Ears are so they can hear what you say about Him. And a mouth is to tell the world about God."

I couldn't have said it better myself little man. Of course, it also reminded me of another passage once I was done speaking to him.
And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise? - Matthew 21;16
I always tell our kids that God can use them, even when they are young. Today was perfect proof of that. You are never too young, too old, too anything, to be used by God. Just be willing to let your arms, eyes, ears, feet, and mouth work for Him.
