My 5 favorite songs: Number 3

3. 'Jesus Was A Carpenter' by Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash is an iconic name in the country music genre, but before he became iconic he was first and foremost a gospel singer. Cash's mother instilled in him the gift of music and faith from a very early age. As Cash battled his own personal demons of addiction once he became famous, he never forgot his roots.
'Jesus was a Carpenter' is my favorite song from Johnny Cash. This song asks us the question, 'How would we treat Jesus today if we saw or met Him?' Knowing that He is so different from what men often make Him out to be, would we even allow Him into our homes?
