I left church last night, around 10:00 pm, not having eaten dinner, and completely exhausted from leading a 3 hour training session (on not a very fun topic.) On the way home I had this urge/craving to call my friend, and old roommate, Jin Park and go grab a “Double-Double” (animalized) from In and Out Burger. What is In and Out Burger, you say? Well, to say that they are the really good hamburgers would be like saying that the Sistine Chapel is a really good painting. Next time you’re on the West Coast you MUST get one, and bring one back for me.
And, as many people know, they are a Christian company and print different Bible verses on their paper products.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Milk shake cups have Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
Hamburger/Cheeseburger wrappers have Revelation 3:20
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
The Double/Double has Nahum 1:7
The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.
Have you ever been to In and Out Burger? Where? Are you a fan? What do you think about putting the Bible Verses on their cups? Is it good ministry or a turn off? If a company is willing to put what they believe on their products should we be a little more bold, with others, and creatively share the verses that daily encourage us? Thoughts?
