More Music

Another of my favorite songs right now is Free to Be Me by Francesca Battistelli.

The thing the song says to me is basically an admission of being “damaged goods” but God loves us anyway.

We can pretend to be better than we are to one another, but God knows the hurts, the sin and the stuff that goes on in all of us – yet He loves us anyway.

In fact, Jesus told a story once about a man who owed a lot of money and his debt was forgiven. Another owed just a little money and his debt was forgiven. Christ asked who would be more grateful, the man who was forgiven much or the man who was forgiven little? Of course, the answer was the man who was forgiven much. The point of the story was that when we realize just how many “dents there in our fenders” and how many “rips are in our jeans,” we’ll appreciate God’s grace even more.

I hope you enjoy the song too.
