Just when I thought I had seen it all…
The other day a friend of mine sent over a link to some ridiculous new sneakers called “satan shoes”.
Yeah.. you read that right.
I’m not going to share the link because I refuse to send any traffic over to the website.
And to be honest with you here…
I’m kinda at a loss for words.
Unfortunately, it’s no secret that Christianity is on the decline here in the US.
Every day we move closer to being a post-Christian society like so many other countries have already.
But even then… how on earth did we end up here?
Where using satan and the kingdom of darkness for marketing is not only accepted…
But an entire generation deems it “cool”??
It appears like these sneakers are part of some deal with a hip hop or rap musician.
And even though this kind of music isn’t for me…
(That’s an understatement… but you get the idea.)
As an entrepreneur I can’t knock someone trying to make a living doing what they love.
I can’t deny it takes some guts to put yourself out there and give it a go.
But to use the name of satan as a means to get attention, and make a buck or two?
I just can’t support it. That’s where the line gets crossed for me.
And crossed by quite a few miles I might add.
I can only imagine you feel the same.
Now I don’t wanna be all doom and gloom here.
There’s already enough going on in today’s crazy world that’ll take care of that for us.
(The topic of today’s email being all too great an example.)
I’m writing this email only because there’s a BIG lesson here we can take away:
It’s more important now than ever before that we’re out spreading His word in every way we can.
Through charity. Ministry. Church planting.
And of course, even business.
See, we NEED to be in the marketplace…
Otherwise what’s gonna stop it from going further in this direction?
How would anyone ever see any integrity?
So if you feel called into the marketplace…
Or feel like He’s given you the talent of entrepreneurship…
Stop waiting on the sidelines!
NOW is the time to act, and to spread His word in as many ways as we possibly can.
I’m sorry to write you an email that might be a bit of a mood killer…
But there’s just too big a message here for us to ignore.
And above all…
I hope this helps if you’ve been on the fence about business, entrepreneurship, or using the gifts He’s given you as a way to serve others.
If He’s calling you to try something new, go for it!
Things will work out, as long as you walk alongside Him…
So do not let fear hold you back any longer.
Have an amazing rest of your day.
Your brother in Christ,
