Word 4 Today August 5, 2011


So I walk into the bathroom and on the counter by the sink is a tube of toothpaste and as I go to put it back in the drawer I couldn’t help but notice the big, bold, red letters on the tube that simply said “NEW LOOK SAME GREAT PRODUCT.”  Now I’m not a critical person as most people think, but either fortunately or unfortunately I seem to have been blessed, or not blessed by being very observant.  My eyes and ears are naturally attracted to just about anything that’s nonsensical, ridiculous, or to be honest downright stupid or unnecessary.  Anyway, this little tube of toothpaste gets me thinking, have we become so gullible and naïve that we would believe that keeping the same product in a different package would cause anyone to buy that tube of toothpaste?  The answer is a resounding, YES!  For man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”  1 Samuel 16:7


Let’s stop fooling ourselves, has the packaging that’s been sold to us by the world brought any more peace, joy or contentment?  Does what we wear make us feel that we are a part of a greater more meaningful purpose?  Does what we own help us in anyway to do all that is possible to share our love and hope with all of those around us?  


Don’t be fooled by the external… check your contents it’s what counts.
