Posts Tagged ‘Advertising’

As many of you will be aware I’ve been off work on sick leave for a number of weeks. As I’ve been unable to do very much I’ve found myself watching TV programmes which I wouldn’t normally watch. What I’ve noticed though in the last two or three weeks is that the focus of the adverts in between programmes has changed – Not only it is now adverts about Christmas, Black Friday deals and bargains but nearly every second advert is one highlighting either people or animals in need of our help by giving a donation to their charity.

While I understand that charities need the public to donate to them so they can continue their work, but really, does there need to be quite so many of these adverts on all day, it really is very depressing. Please don’t think I don’t care about these charities, as that’s not the case – it’s depressing for two reasons:

  • No matter how much I may want to give to each and every charity, there’s no way I can support them all, but they all have an uncanny way of making me feel guilty if I don’t donate!
  • The adverts highlight just how much need there is in this world, and how many awful people there are who are cruel or abusive to people and animals.

Each of these adverts show shocking images of children, adults and animals who’ve been abused or neglected – All designed to pull at our heart-strings and persuade us to donate to their cause. How I wish this world was a better place where no one is abused, homeless, alone, or hungry.

So while these charity adverts are a hard watch, and make me feel guilty, it does remind me of all those who are far less fortunate than I am.

If each of us could give what we can to the charities/causes that we feel are most in need of our help, we can make a difference, and help make this world a better place.

In the last few months in my previous “Slogans” blog posts, I mentioned how we all see and hear many adverts on a daily basis via advertising hoardings or adverts on the radio, television  magazines and newspapers.

Today again I want to give you some more slogans to see how many of the companies/organisations associated with them you can identify from their slogans?

AdvertisingAre you an advertising agent? No?

Well are you a Christian? Yes?

Then you should be an advertising agent…here’s why:

What advertising agencies do for their clients, we are called to do for Christ

Advertising agents are responsible for promoting the products and services provided by their clients, with the aim of getting you and me, the viewer/listener/reader to purchase or utilise their product/services. Similarly, God requires us to promote His message of peace, love and forgiveness.

Mark 16:15 (NIV)

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation”

So get out there and advertise for God!

Yesterday while watching the TV a certain advert came on, one that says

Impossible…is 2 letters too long

This got me thinking about what we can and can’t achieve when wee have God in our lives…the answer of course being we can achieve anything when we have God by our side. I.e. in life, when we give our life to God, impossible is a word that is 2 letters too long!

Matthew 19:26 (NLT)

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”
