Last night Carla and I were picking up a few odds and ends at one of those large grocery store/department store/service station/fast food restaurant places. As we were walking toward the check out we passed a t-shirt rack, and one of the shirts really grabbed my attention.
I laughed [loudly] at first glance. It is a bit funny. I love the cross-hairs in the letter “o”. But as I thought more about it, I started to get a bit tweaked over it. Look at the finger that is pointing at everyone who passes by. This message suggests that everyone needs Jesus, except the wearer of this shirt. It is a bit self-righteous.
Honestly, I started wondering…who doesn’t need Jesus? We all do. We are all in desperate need of the healing and forgiveness that only he can bring to us.
So, let me be the first to say…I do need Jesus. And I am okay with that. It’s a good thing.
Do you ever find yourself thinking way too much about a message on a t-shirt?
