Oops I did it again. I walked by the various booths in the expo hall where I saw lots of good things. I stopped at a table that had two shirts on them. One said good, the other said bad. I chose bad almost immediately, not just because they were out of my size in the good shirts but because that’s the message I chose to display to the world. While the purpose of the t-shirt giveaway was to promote a TV show, I had no real specific purpose for choosing the shirt that said bad. I thought deeper about my choice. Was that really a good choice? I decided after receiving my free shirt that I needed to use this advertisement in a way that will honor God. I thought to myself “go on with yo bad self” and decided that promoting God’s goodness was a good choice and most definitely a better choice. God is always good and He loves and accepts me even when I choose bad over good. From t-shirts to the everyday testing of my faith I am sending a message about the goodness of God. So today, I am wearing a shirt that says bad but feeling good all because of God’s amazing love and grace.
Psalm 86:5 (ESV) For you O Lord are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
Psalm 145:9 (ESV) The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.
