Nike’s “Lazy But Talented” Shirt


I’ve seen this shirt before but never really took the time to question what it means. This is one of dumbest shirts I’ve ever seen. Why would you want everyone to know that you’re talented enough to be really good, but were just too lazy to try? That’s horrible. It made me start thinking about if Christians wore shirts like, “Bible Owner, Non-reader,” or “Disobedient but Great Potential,” or my personal favorite “Christ Follower but Unloving.” This week, let’s make sure that we’re living to our fullest potential and not sending mixed messages to those that we may come into contact with.
Happy Sabbath!
