TOP LINE HUMILITY
Hey, It's Brett...
This is another shirt I wanted for my private collection and a reminder while I hustle and train. A reminder of one of my favorite scriptures from the bible.
Philippians 2 which is titled "Have The Attitude of Christ" was always special to me. Growing up, I struggled with attitude problems, pride, and arrogance. It wasn't until I was older and had been humbled and pummeled repeatedly by life that I dug deep into scripture and faith to find solid ground.
Read if for yourself:
3 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4 Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.
5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
6 Though he was God,[a]
he did not think of equality with God
as something to cling to.
7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges[b];
he took the humble position of a slave[c]
and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form,[d]
8 he humbled himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
That scripture pierces my heart and spirit. It's everything I believe in. It's why I love Top Line and why I'm ok with being a servant leader. It's also a reminder to do the right thing when the right thing is not the easy thing. Faith has a funny way of making life seem simple.
Even though this shirt was meant for my own collection, I know a lot of you have a firm faith in Jesus Christ. Even if you don't (yet), we can all agree that a healthy dose of humility is never a bad thing.
P.S. The hollowed out Cross is the tattoo I have!
