It's hard not to be a cynic when you are someone who believes (as the Bible teaches, of course) that people have a sinful nature with which even Christians constantly battle. That's probably why I love twisted humor, such as this. You may have seen various motivational posters in assorted office spaces...maybe you even have one or two. "Demotivators" is a parody of those pithy posters intended to motivate, but which usually make me feel rather defeated.

There's a lesson on Law and Gospel here, isn't there? The Law's high expectations never motivated anyone. The Gospel is the only true motivator in our life of service to others.

In the meantime, have a laugh at this bit of cynical satire with me. If you've ever worked in an office setting, I think you will especially appreciate this stuff.
