Would Jesus shop at Target or Wal-mart? Or is he more of a Ambercrombie type?
It’s hard to say, because the Target’s and Wal-marts’ of the world use cheep labor to make their items, but Ambercrombie uses sex to sell their items. Where is the moral ground on this, and where could Jesus shop?
Both examples have really the same issue, dignity of the human person, one uses the human labor unfairly the others use the human body unfairly. Seems like Jesus would not shop at all.
The dignity of human life is all to often over looked for profits. We see it everywhere we look. We see it on TV, in the ad’s and the reality shows, such as wife swap or the junk on MTV.
We sell ourselves out in many ways, and all to often sell ourselves to short. For what? We like the looks we get when we dress nice and the feeling we have when people want what we have. But is it worth the price we pay?
I am not talking about money, because if it was just money, we would all shop at K-mart. No it not money we sell ourselves for, but rather it’s dign1ty.
Dignity is the currency that w use, we will sell our dignity for almost anything. Look at what on TV or the music we buy.
We are willing to listen to music the degrades us, we sell are body, mind and soul to fit in, to look good, to be all that, we pay a high price, for way to little.
Jesus sold nothing, but rather gave it away, Jesus did not care if he was wearing the latest, or best of what was out there, rather He was concerned about the price we all pay, to fit in, to be the one.
Jesus gave us his whole body, soul and divinity, for the salvation of human kind. He got nothing in return, if we are willing to sell ourselves, or dignity for the price of a pair of shoes.
Is our body not worth more then that, is not our mind and soul worth more then the newest trend?
Our eye see the cost of it all, and our mind processes it all, but we, as a whole, choose not to stop it. Rather we, as a whole, choose to allow it to happen, and in some ways encourage it to happen.
So would Jesus shop at Target, Wal-mart or Ambecrcombie I don’t know for sure, but I would bet not, I would bet that Jesus would see the price was way to high.
