GOD simplified

 

JESUS said:

Matthew 18:3 (King James Version)

3 And said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.


Is it really possible to simplify knowledge about GOD?

Oh yes, if you have the heart of a kid.

Kids have an edge.

We're simpler in thinking, maybe even purer in thought.

We understand the Bible more, because we don't seem to have "emotional" baggage, unlike some jaded, older folks.

We have tiny backpacks, if anything.

We just take GOD's WORD for it.

One word from the LORD, and we can get it.

When the LORD speaks, ah, we're all eyes, and ears.

We are transfixed by the stories and adventures in the Bible, as only GOD can tell.

But what does marketing have to do with God?

Maybe, it's better to ask, what does God have to do with marketing?

The day He changed my heart, He changed my thinking, too.

That means, my work as writer, marketer, and designer was transformed.

Now, it's ALL GOD.

All my brain cells breathe of God.

My heart cells have been captivated, too -- TOTALLY.

JESUS knows I like the simple way, because I intend to share stuff with you.

So this morning, He gave me a dream, and from that dream, He led me to an image, and from that image, an idea clicked.

Now, we can PRINT pages from that website, COLOR pages on God, from stories in the Bible.

We can also DOWNLOAD pdf files, for easy reading.

A really FUN, and EASY way, of knowing more about GOD!

Surely, this is God's "form" of marketing, taking compassion upon all of us, and inspiring the creators of that website to simplify Bible study for everyone.

Who sez studying the Bible is boring?

Nope.

Some cool adults, with kid hearts, created that website to help us all.

It's a cool way to STUDY the Bible, and get to know our FATHER in heaven.

Even adults, who like simple stuff, will surely enjoy the site, for it has TONS of treasures!

You can never be too old to be a kid in your heart.

Now, everyone can get to know GOD the easy way.

But I won't keep you longer.

Here, go to ministry-to-children now!

You will HAVE fun!

Marketing people are FUNNY


Yup, marketing people are funny.

They track you all the time.

They want to know where you live, what you do, what car you drive, who your friends are, what food you eat, what clothes you wear, what toothpaste you use, what soda you drink, what phone you use, what computer you're using, what operating system you have, etc etc etc.

Makes you feel like an ant under a high-powered microscope.

Some days, I wonder if there are CCTVs in public toilets.

Of course, there are, in almost all (or maybe all) traffic intersections, and in city and neighborhood streets. 

I don't know, but we kids aren't neurotic.

We are not obsessed with figuring out others.

That's too "sophisticated", that's for adults.

We have simple, happy, uncorrupted brains.

We just play, and mind our own business.

We don't worry, nor care, what designer brand our playmates wear.

We only care we get along, and please, don't grab my toy -- you've got yours.

We also only care to eat, play, sleep, or if our family loves us, and we pray to God directly. 

And yes, we have a DIRECT line to Him.

Adults need call centers.

We're not nuts about school, unless we have cool playmates.

To keep us from bawling when we can't have our way, adults shove gadgets in our hands, giving us something digital to look at, or play with.

And, of course, our growing brains marvel at all those moving, talking pictures.

And we find, that we can  actually "eliminate" enemies from those games.

After a while, we get hooked on those gadgets, and mommy can't seem to pry us away from her phone.

But, duh, who gave us those gadgets in the first place?

We kids don't go crazy checking each other out.

The sun's out, the grass is green, the trees are heavenly, the animals are scampering, and we just lie down on the grass, tie a string on beetles legs, or climb those trees.

We don't think of brands, or products, or retirement, or school.

If something's colorful, we get intrigued.

If something smells great, we want it.

If something's itchy, we take it off.

If something tastes good, we eat it all.

If we're tired, we sleep.

How can we not be that predictable?

We have our own, little, peaceful world where everything seems right.

Until we grow up.

Then, we become even more fair game for marketers, who will not stop until they've figured us, inside out, outside in.

They call it marketing "intelligence".

Some days I wonder.
