Crafts were never “my thing.” Come to think of it, I was never any good at anything remotely artsy and never got much enjoyment from being made to do a craft-like project of any kind. There were a few things that I did at craft time during Vacation Bible School that I found to be ok–but for the most part I tried to avoid doing crafts.
I guess this is why I haven’t spent much time inside of any Hobby Lobby stores. Hobby Lobby is a store for crafts and materials to make things. But even though I hope to never enter a Hobby Lobby, I now respect them deeply.
Yesterday I opened the front page of the Knoxville News-Sentinel and on page three saw an amazing full-page add. It showed a hill with three crosses and had the awesome statement of: “Because He lives, you can have eternal life.” Along with this it had a paraphrase of Romans 10:9 as well as a phone # to call if you would like to know more about Christ (1-888-NEED-HIM). You can see this add here: http://www.hobbylobby.com/site3/ministry/.
This add was paid for by Hobby Lobby. I don’t know much about their business nor do I care about making crafts, but I do care a lot about Jesus and am grateful to them for running this add.
Take a look at the site and drop them a note telling them thanks. We should encourage those who spread the Gospel message.
