So yesterday, the People of the Second Chance posted the new Tiger Woods Nike ad on their website and asked for “one word” thoughts about it.
If you haven’t seen the ad, here it is:
To their question, I posted the following:
One word: Leverage
“We are not ashamed of our scars, wounds, or failures and leverage them as a source of strength and character development.” -POTSC “About Us” page.
I know this is a Nike ad, but Tiger had to somehow consent to it (in fact, he may have even asked his mom, since it involved his dad.) People feel he owes them some explanation – I don’t – but this is a way of furthering that conversation I guess. However it’s used, I still see this whole thing as something between him and his family. My only notice and consideration has been that of “but for the grace of God go I” (as a depraved & sinful man myself) and how can I use this to “leverage” or model grace to others who bring Tiger’s situation up.
OK, stay with me here.
