I love this song, and I love this video. It’s a riff on Matthew 16:26, “For what will a man be profited, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” This text is often mistaken as a verse for greedy rich people. This is a distortion.
This text is for everyone. It is for every person who tends to fixate on his idols in place of Christ. It is for all of usâ€”rich or poor, young or old, everyone. We all have hearts that are prone to wander, and this text calls us back to recognize what is truly the pearl of great price, the treasure hidden in a field, our King Jesus.
So yeah, I like this video. Perhaps you will too.
