Catchy Jingle
Posted: Apr 28, 2009 in Uncategorized | No Comments |

So I finally did it. After months and months of hearing the “5…5 dollar….5 dollar foot long,” commercial from Subway, I enjoyed one of their sandwiches today for lunch. Advertising works regardless of what some may say. Maybe that is just the voice of my dad coming through as he has been in radio advertising for the past 30 years. Ever since the invention of DVR or “tivo,” companies have had to take a step up in regards to their commercials. Let’s face it, almost none of us actually like watching commercials on a tv program, (maybe with the exception of the Super Bowl.) The commercials that are the most successful are the ones that get stuck in your head. Today was a great example.

Tim and left the office at about 12:30 and went to lunch. As is typical for most days, here was the conversation in the car leaving the parking lot.

Corey – “Where do you want to go for lunch?”

Tim – “I don’t care…You decide.”

Corey – “It doesn’t matter to me.”

Silence ensues

Corey – “How about a Publix sub…those are good”

Tim – “Yeah I like those.”

Corey – “Wait, how about one of those 5 dollar foot longs. I haven’t had one in awhile.”

Time – “Sounds good.”

Hopefully you weren’t to board from our conversation.:) Have you ever considered the random things that we have memorized. We can remember movie quotes and catchy commercial Jingles and lines from our favorite t.v. shows. Our minds have the outstanding ability to remember things. The problem is…many times we remember the wrong things. We often remember things we should forget and forget things we should remember. Psalm 119:11 says “I have hidden your Word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.”

How well do you know God’s Word? Do you have more movie lines memorized than Bible verses? If so, now would be a great time to switch that trend. Allow God’s Word to so soak into your spirit that it affects every fiber of your life. It’s freeing:)

With Expectancy!
