So the other day we put on some music and started dancing with the kids and just acting goofy. Jack has a series of dance moves that he thinks are pretty cool and we don’t have the heart to tell him anything different, and in all reality they are cute solely because he is the one doing them (-: Anyway, Ben was dancing with the boys and needed a break so he just stood there for a minute and Jack said, “Daddy, dance with us.” To which Ben replied with the ever so popular phrase, ” I am dancing on the inside.” Well, Jack wouldn’t have that for a minute, so he grabbed Ben’s hands and said, “Dance on the outside!!!”
The Lesson: You can know a lot about God and His goodness, but if you never share that with anyone it is just like “dancing on the inside” which is sometimes hard for us non-verbal processers without any good dance moves, but God doesn’t care about how cool we look, He just wants us to “dance on the outside” so His love and goodness can shine through us into a dark world.
Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
