It is time for a reality (and grammar) check. “I’m on a list,” and “I’m on the A-list” don’t mean the same thing. In this world, in which celebrities and so-called “influencers” believe they are exempt from consequences and proport their own importance, there needs to be some self-reflection. Many who clamor for fame do little to actually make any positive change for society, much less humanity. Virtue signalling does not promote social justice, just the signaller.
Here is where the list comes in. Do we, yes that includes me, truly show the love of our fellow man? Are we the proverbial Samaritans Luke 10:25-37, the sheep among goats Matthew 25:31-46? Are we striving for righteousness?
In the end it will lead to the only list that counts: 11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire. (Revelation chapter 20).
Lars was a do-it-yourself, back-to-basics kind of guy. In his mind, even the flat-packed Ikea projects were too “processed.” They were, however, the best he could do on a budget.
His kitchen finished, he needed to use the rest of his meagre resources to outfit it. Ikea was out of the question at this stage. Then he heard that there were some good options available at HEMA
Did I mention that he liked “back to basics?” Well the HEMA app definitely did that. When he used it to find the location of the nearest branch, he found a branch indeed. You see, the app dumped him in the middle of a forest.
