1,581 Days in his Brett Favre jersey

May 6, 2008

Associated Press reports: Connecticut boy takes off Favre jersey for good after 4 yrs

“GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Finally, David Witthoft shunned his Brett Favre jersey for the first time in 1,581 days.

The Ridgefield, Conn. boy, 12, wore the No. 4 jersey every day since receiving it as a gift for Christmas in 2003. David’s father, Chuck Witthoft, said Monday that his son’s last day wearing the jersey was April 23 — his 12th birthday. …”

So, you know where this is going. What are you wearing? Does it surround you, permeate your daily life such that people cannot help but notice? No doubt, as he walked through their day, folks said, “there goes David — he sure loves Favre.”

Here comes the take-away: As you encounter others today, what are you leaving with them? If you are leaving folks with “he/she sure loves _____”, how does the phrase end for you. Are you so proud of your Saviour that you just have to let it out. What’s on your shirt? WHO
is on your shirt?

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

    What a great reminder! In addition to what’s on our shirt…we need to remember what’s on our face. Do we remember each day the many reasons we have to smile?

    “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus, for all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21
