Brave New World

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

- (Colossians 3:2 ESV)


In the age of storage wars, cupcake shows
And movies about parking lots
Our longing for the ultimate entertainment experience
Has left us searching the bottom of the cereal box
For a prize that doesn’t seem exist…
So now, we’re being led to believe that the very notion
Of something other than our present reality is a myth
Score one for boredom in the win column
Because this Brave New World experiment
Has left us empty and solemn
With a penchant for comedy
And a love for treasure-seeking
Only to find that here, the moths and rust destroy it
So we inevitably end up with neither


“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!”

- (Matthew 6:19-23 ESV)


Soli Deo Gloria,
Shon
