So a few days ago I was going to my local grocery store to buy some ice. I was burning up from the extra heat generated from all the fires here in Southern California and was in NEED of ICE....anyway, I found my ice and then went to check out and as I did, my cashier made a comment about my t-shirt. (See the picture)
See, a few days prior I purchased two of these cool new VOM t-shirts because they ALWAYS open up conversation about my faith.
And sure enough, that day, my cashier noted the front of the shirt. She asked me why that shirt was illegal, and so I told her that it was because of the content on the back of the shirt.
Well, as you can imagine that got her curious, as it did the others in line behind me. So I turned around, lifted up my long hair, and SHE read the back outloud so that everyone around us could hear. I LOVE IT when pre-Christians (yes, I just made that up) read the bible out loud in public. And honestly, there I was giggling inside because the shirt totally served it's purpose (well beyond covering my body).
After this dear lady read the back she told me that she had no idea that Christians were persecuted all over the place. I told her it was true and that here in America we are very blessed because for now we have religious freedom.
So here's another challenge for you. Why not buy a few VOM t-shirts and wear them. Not only are they nice shirts, good quality and have fun designs, they really DO open up conversations about our faith and our suffering brothers and sisters.
