I just spent an hour scrolling through about 3,000 pages of giftware images: plaques, picture frames, ceramic crosses, candle holders, ornaments, etc.
The company whose wares I was scanning has a fairly high percentage of items which contain Christian sentiment or scripture: Lord’s Prayer, Serenity Prayer, Ps. 23, I Cor. 13, Jer 29:11; and various pieces that just say “hope,” or “believe,” or “joy.”
I remember years ago hearing a preacher talk about verses you’ll never see in a gift store, like this one:
Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. II Tim 3:12 (NASB)
It might not sell well, but it would provide balance.
I wonder, do some Christians follow, and live inside the bubble of a “gift shop” theology?
