today i am sporting a brand-new t-shirt, made by uber-creative youth worker and ys author, steve case. this is my third shirt he’s made me over the years — the first two being classic paintings of jesus: in one jesus is wearing a larry-boy (veggie tales) t-shirt; in the other, jesus is wearing a ys t-shirt.
my new shirt simply has a verse of scripture on it. glancing at it, it looks just like any other scripture shirt one might purchase for one’s idiot-self at a christian bookstore (how’s that for biting the hand that feeds me?). but the verse, in the not-so-widely-used contemporary english version, is proverbs 10:13, which says:
if you are wise it will show when you speak. if you are stupid you will be beaten with a stick.
mmm. wisdom to live by. wisdom to wear, as i proudly do today.
