Black Friday

Black FridayBlack Friday has been around for a very long time. It is usually the busiest shopping days of the year. It is also one of the most dangerous shopping days of the year too. It is also ironic that we just spend a time of being thankful and now we are being greedy.

How grateful are we really?

We just spent a day of Thanksgiving thanking God and people for what we have and now we spend the very next day fighting over toys, electronics, gadgets and items. We trample and hurt people to just get a deal. It is worth it? Does this fighting so we are truly thankful for what we have or does it show how greedy we are?

They don’t call it Black Friday for nothing. Note the term, black. Black gives off an idea of darkness or evil.

Sales now even start on Thanksgiving Day too.

Why must be go into battle over a cheaper priced item? I believe that is Greed!

Check out this warning on greed in the Bible, Luke 12:15.

Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

We fight and bicker over these tangible items that we cannot take with us in Heaven. We are told to lay our treasures in Heaven. What are theses treasures? The very souls of those around you. Your family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, classmates, etc. PEOPLE! (See Matthew 6:19-21)

Check out what Proverbs 15:27 says …

He who is greedy for gain troubles his own house,
But he who hates bribes will live.

Do you practice daily thanks living?

So why be greedy just to get that item for someone? Did you know what you put before God becomes an idol. Even that item you buy that person or even your shopping habits can become an idol. If you put anything before Jesus, it’s an idol.
