live like that

I cried when I heard this testimony on #klove . Here is the Australian version of the story.

When Ice cream used to cost a lot less, a little boy waited patiently in line to sit in a restaurant. The waitress came and the boy asked the waitress how much an icecream sunday costs. She said 50c. He counted his coins and asked how much a plain ice cream costs. By this time, the waitress was getting impatient because there was a line for tables. She replied 30c. So the little boy ordered a plain ice cream. She came back with the ice cream and put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the icecream and counted out his coins, paid the cashier and left. The waitress came to clear the table and cried. He had left her a tip. He had ordered a plain ice cream because he couldn't afford to buy the sunday and leave her a tip.

My thoughts: Can we be like the boy? Can we live less comfortably so that others can be touched by how we live? Can we bring others to Christ by living less comfortably? Being more baring? Letting others take advantage of us?

Intro G,D, Em,C,D
(It's the same chord progression through the whole song)(Except for the tag)

Capo 3
Verse 1

G 
Sometimes I think 
                        D
What will people say of me 
                        Em
When I'm only just a memory 
                                C           D
When I'm home where my soul belongs 

        G
Was I love
                             D 
When no one else would show up 
                              Em
Was I Jesus to the least of those
                                  C        D 
Was my worship more than just a song 

Chorus

           G
I want to live like that
             D
And give it all I have
             Em
So that everything I say and do
 C                  D
Points to You 

     G
If love is who I am 
                    D
Then this is where I'll stand 
    Em
Recklessly abandoned 
               C         D
Never holding back 

G,D,Em,C
I want to live like that 
I want to live like that 

Verse 2

Am I proof 
That You are who you say You are 
That grace can really change a heart 
Do I live like Your love is true 
People pass 
And even if they don't know my name 
Is there evidence that I've been changed 
When they see me, do they see You 

I want to live like that 
And give it all I have 
So that everything I say and do 
Points to You 

If love is who I am 
Then this is where I'll stand 
Recklessly abandoned 
Never holding back 

I want to live like that 
I want to live like that

A                      C                G             D
I'm longing for the world to know the glory of the King
