What Do They Think I Need?

Volkswagen Starwars Commercial 2011

Romans 12:2 (NLT) Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.

Do you look forward to the Super Bowl ads?

I’m entertained by them every year, but am trying to view them as a reflection of our culture.  These commercials cost big bucks and aim to influence our buying habits and opinions.  So, after being entertained, step back and ask:

Who do the producers think I am?
What do they think I need?
What will their product do for me?
What behaviors and customs are shown, and should I join in?

Everyone will be talking about the commercials during the game and on Monday, so let’s talk about them too.  Were you entertained?  Moved?  Offended?  Influenced?  Confused?

What do they say about the customs of this world?

Like a productive garden, a rich relationship should be tended regularly.  To be reminded to plant His Word in your heart, follow me on Twitter @Cathy_Chung or subscribe at Seeds of Scripture.
