Lecrae is definitely my new favorite hip hop artist.
His newest album, Rebel, has been in heavy rotation on my playlist for weeks.
Below is my favorite verse:
Yeah do it for Christ if you trying to figure what to do with your life
if you making a lot money hope you doing it right because the money is Gods you better steward it right
stay focused if you ain’t got no ride
your life ain’t wrapped up in what you drive
the clothes you wear the job you work
the color your skin naw you Christian first
people living life for a job
make a lil money start living for a car
get em a house a wife kids and a dog
when they retire they living high on the hog
but guess what they didn’t ever really live at all
to live is Christ yeah that’s Paul I recall
to die is gain so for Christ we give it all
he’s the treasure you’ll never find in the mall
Your money your singleness marriage talent and time
they were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is Divine
What would my life be like if I believed that Christ is the only Treasure my heart is really after, and everything else in my life is a tool He’s given me to display His worth?
