A Commercial Worth Watching

February 6, 2012

I know the web is abuzz about the awful/awesome/dull/funny Super Bowl commercials, but I think the most interesting one was the commercial Tony Dungy recommended as a “pro-family halftime alternative.”  Instead of promoting consumerism and hedonism, it promoted concepts such as service, love, sacrifice, and duty.

There is a difference between lip-service and life-service.  God knows the difference.  Don’t kid yourself.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.  (James 1:27)

It’s one thing to talk, it’s another thing to do.  The family crisis Tony speaks of is real and pressing.  Kudos for him calling people to help those in need.

We need more commercials bringing us face to face with loving duty instead of unchecked desire.
