What They're Really Selling
So Iâ€™m sitting at home on a Sunday afternoon watching some football with my son when this commercial comes on with BEYONCE slithering across the screen saying, â€œLet me upgrade you babyâ€¦â€? Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ve seen this already right? Well in the middle of this commercial my son looks at me and says, â€œWhat does she mean â€˜let me upgrade youâ€™ dad?â€? And Iâ€™ve got to be honest, I had to stop and think before I responded, because although the commercial was advertising HD TV, I know what they really meant! SEX, SEX, SEXâ€¦itâ€™s everywhere! Especially in commercials these days. And donâ€™t get me wrong, Iâ€™m not some prude or anything like that, but when I sit down to watch a football game, I donâ€™t want to have to worry about explaining all the SOFT PORN in the commercials to my son!
Whatâ€™s the deal with that anyway?
People really seem to be looking for something in our world these days! And advertisers know it, so they use whatever methods they can to get people to tune in for a few seconds longer and watch their commercials so they can sell more stuff.
But I wonder whatâ€™s really behind it allâ€¦I think I can make a pretty good guess. I think thereâ€™s a ton of lonely people in our world looking for something more. Theyâ€™ve tried a lot of different things to fill that emptiness they feel inside: DRUGS, PORN, ALCOHOL, BUSYNESS, but nothing ever works and they feel more empty than theyâ€™ve ever felt before.
The only thing Iâ€™ve found that really works to fill the emptiness in my heart is my relationship with Jesus Christ. Iâ€™m not talking about going to church or religion or anything like that. Iâ€™m talking about a friendship with the God of the Universe through His Son Jesus Christ. He gives my life meaning and helps me through all the tough times that come my way.
If youâ€™re looking for a real upgrade in your life, you should give Him a shot!
