For years, refrigerators have been making ice and distributing water without the need for a filter. Now, manufacturers have devised a plan to keep money coming in from the new refrigerators by making them beep and make noise when the filter requires replacement. The obnoxiousness makes you give in and purchase a replacement, so you don’t have to hear it. Think of other money-making schemes that need us to pay to keep things running correctly.
What about your own body? I know people who’ve been diagnosed with high cholesterol who must go to the doctor at least once a year to get a new prescription for statins. The doctor makes money, the pharmacy makes money, and the manufacturer makes money. Is it really cholesterol that causes heart problems, or could it be the processed food? Are the manufacturers in on this scheme together? Follow the money to the top, and you will see that they are.
The Bible doesn’t talk about anyone needing continuous medications to stay alive, and they lived much longer than we do. Spend some time in thought instead of allowing others to think for you. We’ve allowed our thinking time to be replaced by television and technology, and we don’t use our brain the way God created it. Put down the mobile device and turn off the tv, and think for yourself for a moment.
Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything. 2 Timothy 2:7
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. James 1:5
