Maybe this won’t be as funny to some of you as it is to me, but I feel compelled to share.
Ice Breakers are not Christian mints (or if they are, they don’t understand the most basic concepts of Christianity). See for yourself.
Did you notice how the opening labeled “to share” is nearly 2/3 smaller than the opening labeled “not to share.” If I am to believe that this isn’t just a weird labeling goof on the part of the company, then I am to believe that they really expect you to be very stingy with your mints.
I think there’s a decent correlation to society here dealing with a “my needs first” generation which cares less and less about others.
But I choose to believe that we are meant for more (do you get the pun in the title now?). One of my favorite Bible verses comes from Philippians 2:3, which says (New Living Translation), “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.”
We were meant for more. We are meant for more.
And if you’ve wondered where I’ve been the past couple of weeks, I’ll tell you what I saw. I saw 75 people who get it…who know they were meant for more…who gave up a week of their summer to go and better the lives of folks they had never previously met. It was amazing, and I think my mints need a new label, because the junior high mission camp I attended taught me that I am meant for more.
