Thanksgiving and Greed
Well, i haven’t blogged in a while. . . for good reasons might i add. . . First off, October – November is the busiest time of the year for my website design business. Second, my wife and I just had our first – A beautiful little girl. Next, I contracted the flu. Finally after all that, i got food poisoning. I hope i am now able to slowly get back into the groove.
I’ve been wanting to write about this since the first time i heard about the black friday massacre at Walmart. Yes, as most of you know, someone was trampled to death in a stampede of people. Although, i sincerely doubt people are up 4a.m. buying gifts for someone else. I’m sorry but if i’m shopping that early in those crowds, I’m not shopping for aunt sally. I think it’s safe to say that a majority of those people are shopping for themselves first.
With that all said, here is something ironic. Why is it that the greediest day of the year is the day after the most thankful day of the year? It’s absolutely true. Black Friday should be renamed “Greed Friday”. I’m not saying that if you go shopping on Black Friday that you are greedy. I went shopping on Black Friday, so i guess it’s OK for you too.
It’s just a shame that our time of thankfulness only lasts for 24 hours. It also makes you wonder about the Spiritual powers involved in this evil world system. Do you think it’s a coincidence that Black Friday is right after Thanksgiving? Maybe our spiritual enemy had something to do with its timing? It’s like we are praying to God thanking him for our blessings but at the same time we have our riches still grasped tight in our folded hands.
