Chocolate Worship Part 2
First Magnum icecreamswere calling for you to bow down before them. Now it looks like Coles brand chocolates want in on the act too. Let me make that clearer: Generic. Brand. Chocolate. We’re not talking high quality Swiss chocolate that you can only buy in exclusive boutique stores. We’re not even talking the stuff that promotes itself using a gorilla playing drums. We’re talking about Fun Sized packaged chocolate bars that bear the name of a supermarket chain on them. And they want you to worship them.
It says it right there on the package: Worship Me! Are our standards that low? Will we bow down to a cheap Mars Bar rip off? Are we looking for any excuse to worship something that isn’t the one true God who actually has expectations from us?
I bought these chocolates to give out at youth group as prizes. I didn’t read the packaging before hand. That disappoints me as it would have made a great teaching point about how we treat God and turn and worship other gods.
(Yes, the packaging is open in the pic. I had to get the chocolate out of the packaging to get a decent scan. Okay, yes I ate the chocolate. That’s what chocolate is for. Chocolate is not my master. It will submit both to me and my belly.)
lovin it Joel, so true, get…in…my…belly! (and no I won’t worship you either)
I noticed this too when we got said chocolate. It shocked me that it said that. You’re right, it’s not like they’re anything special.
