So, I like sports. And recently the only sport that has a schedule that allows me to be involved seems to be summer softball. I love playing softball. I’ve been playing on teams since I was about 12 or so. This year I decided to leave the team I’ve been playing with for years and join a new team for the sole reason that we moved a little farther away from the home field than is convenient to travel for me. I heard about a new team that started up and thought it sounded like a good group of girls to play with.
Today, the girl who asked me to play dropped by with her husband for a visit which was SO nice becuase alot of the “ball girls” I only ever see during ball season. Anyway we were chatting away about random things as usual and then of course the topic of this new team came up. She was saying that so-and-so got our sponsor and blah, blah, blah. Then I asked who was sponsoring us, thinking about what cool shirts we might have or if we’ll get warm up pants or matching hats or something. She said our sponsor is Bud Light.
My heart immediatly sank because I have moral issue with supporting a beer company when I don’t drink and don’t endorse drinking in the least. Immediatly I said, “uh oh” and cheryl was all well you don’t have to wear the shirt. Well, that’s a no brainer, I won’t be wearing the shirt but should I even be playing on the team? I really don’t know now. Some Christians wouldn’t think much of it. But would Jesus play for Bud Light? I might have just got my answer…
Maybe I need to find a new team. I welcome your thoughts on this. I know it’s not a major issue of the universe or anything but I am trying lately to do the right thing 🙂
