I know that the holiday of Thanksgiving has ended. Had the chance to eat up the grub that was blessed with. And yes, pie was served with that whip cream. All with the Thanksgiving trimmings with NFL Football in between.
Now I want to call out the fools who want to act a fool on Black Friday with this video:
All of you in these videos: really?! This is one of the main reasons why I do not go out and shop on Black Friday. Nope.
I’ve mentioned this years ago (actually 4 years ago) when I blogged like crazy about the disdain about the frenzy Black Friday showdown at the Best Buy’s, JCPenney’s, ToysRUS, Walmarts, and many other boxed retailers we’ve been shopping all along! WE KNOW. We pass by these stores everyday on our way to work, school, your friends house, your boyfriend’s or girlfriend’s house, or your favorite spot just to kick it. Don’t tell me we’ve done it.
Speaking of that, remember when I posted this months “Scratching my head question” months ago:
Um….Every year, get up early to go to the stores and get the deals, but can’t do the same for the Worship Services?
Um, yeah. Remember that? Remember when I posted that question? Let that sink in. Well many of you probably have done it. If we get up all early for all these Black Friday deals, which is NO DEAL AT ALL per say, why not get up early for Church? Spoiler Alert: you will get up early again for a major holiday, that would be Christmas. Your kids will be the first ones up as usual going to that tree and pop open them gifts like crazy. Oh I know the feeling because I’ve done it. Many of you who are about my age (turning 4o on December 5th) already knows about that anticipation because we did the same thing. Yeah I know that guilt train is still running on time.
But really though, why is it about some folks or many folks have to fight like hell all because of a TV? Or in this video above, why there are some knuckleheads had to start a fight and then it’s on WorldStar or some tabloid website from your own cell phone? Yes I know that many have cell phones and where there is fight, it will be on the internet. Don’t let the cops catch it! Once it goes out, it goes out. Just like your email addresses! Don’t be so surprised if someone’s sons are in that video, and it will embarrass the family, their chances of getting into college or a club or an organization will be tarnished. Consequences are a bugger.
We know from history like this clip below does not change. It really doesn’t. And plus what do we say to our children who look at the adults that we tell them to act nice in public? Oh I hate to go there.
Folks: if we tell our children to act right, then we as adults better get right with Jesus and his meetings and ACTUALLY do the job. Enough of the mess. No matter what holiday comes up.
End of the rant.
