In the Blink of an Eye
I was watching TV one morning after my quiet time when a commercial came on. For some reason I didn't put the TV on mute and go fix my second cup of coffee. I sat watching, my mouth hanging open, dumbfounded at the ridiculous advertisement playing out in front of me.
I know you are thinking of a commercial....well, it ain't that one! Although it is totally disgusting to me as well. So I won't get sued, I won't name the product, however it is a medication that women brush on their eyelids to make their eyelashes longer and fuller.
People Please! I can only hope that there are very few in this world that have no other concerns in life than the fact that their eyelashes are lacking in some way.
I wonder, just how many hundreds of thousands of dollars went into the study and manufacture of this totally useless product made only for people that are that self absorbed. That money could very well have been the make it or break it for the discovery of a cure for a form of cancer or any number of debilitating disease.
Wake Up People! Put your life in perspective! Those long eyelashes you covet so are just so much hair.
Revelation 3:14 "To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God's creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. 19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. 21 To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."
Are you lukewarm? When Jesus looks at the fruit of your life, what will He see? Will He see a man or woman that thought of nothing but their own comfort? A person that cared not for anything other than what ever made them happy? Someone that lived blind to the needs of their brothers and sisters and had no thought for anyone but themselves? Will Jesus want to spew your name from His lips as a bad tasting liquid?
I pray not beloved reader. I pray not.
