have you heard about the new “lebron X”, nike’s newest installment of lebron james’ signature shoe? the enhanced version of the shoe that features motion sensing technology will reportedly cost up to $315. $315? you gotta be kidding me!
The LeBron X is inspired, both aesthetically and metaphorically, by the diamond, a precious and nearly indestructible gemstone. The shoe is engineered to prioritize responsiveness, impact protection and dynamic containment, all required for LeBron’s unique skillset.
Combining four of Nike’s most innovative technologies, the LeBron X features dynamic Flywire technology, Hyperfuse construction, Nike Plus functionality and the first full-length visible Zoom Air unit.
gee. i think i need these. might even make my preaching better, don’tcha think?
seriously, this got me thinking about marriage tonight. there are people who will spare no expense on shoes. making the decision to drop a big three on a pair of gym kicks is not difficult at all, if owning tennies…and the props that come from wearing the best money can buy…is what you value.
what about your marriage? how much do you value it?
would you spend money to build it? would you spend money to save it? what resources of yours are you investing in your marriage? are you giving the best of your time…and energy…and creativity…and attitude…and prayer…and intellect…and emotion…and grace…
…to this relationship you say is the most important one you have ever entered into…and ever will?
or do you treat your marriage no better than a pair of tennis shoes?
