This year’s hottest new toys can be found on this list myrcc.us/uRnA7Z.. Now say what you’ll say about “consumerism” and the true meaning of Christmas etc etc bla bla bla– but there’s something even bigger than these buzz words/phrases behind this one..
If your kid wants (or asked Santa Claus for) one of these toys- and like my kid’s toy request- it’s sold out EVERYWHERE online and in physical stores — how crazy are you gonna get to pull through for them (or for Santa to pull through)??
Now we’ve all heard stories right?! I’m reminded of Dwight Schrute’s entrepreneurship in one the office episodes where he buys up a bunch of the hot new toys of the year only to resell them at a much higher price..
So what would you do? How much would you pay? Ten percent more? Half and again? Double? More?? How many hours would you search the web for it? How many miles would you drive to get it?
Would you do the unthinkable and get it from those shady websites that don’t have credible customer reviews? (if so– your poor kid’s gotta good chance of gettin’ nuttin’ for Christmas)..
Imagine if we were so militant about chasing after hope, peace, joy, and love!
Luckily we found Braden’s hot new toy at Target right when a few came in on the truck.. Great timing.. This year as families and friends all over the world light our “advent candles” consider what it means to put a flame to the wick of those four advent themes of hope, peace, joy and love!
Wishing you a warm and hopeful Advent season..
