ZOMBIE WORLD

Are we only interested in this crazy Zombie obsession because we are nothing but zombies ourselves? Have we literally become walking meaningless people filled with darkness and death?

Has this translated into a zombie world where we have become the walking dead?  If you do not know what a zombie is, it’s a person held to resemble the so called walking dead.

The walking dead? Can this really be true? I think the answer is not something we want to hear, but that we need to hear. People today more than ever seem meaningless and have but one focus and that is to fill their voracious hunger no matter the cost. Even life. What is this voracious hunger?

The hunger to consume and have the best and latest product, piece of technology, clothing, car, house, or other meaningless physical object. The hunger to eat and eat in order to fill a hole or gap in our lives. The hunger for more and more and more. We just can’t get enough. Are we not all guilty of these things?

Luke 12: 23, “Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.”

Let me just say this, not overnight, but over time we have become these meaningless walking zombies. Our wants and needs have taken us away from the true essence of living, and instead set us up to live a meaningless life.

Watch as people buy what they want or think they want, but don’t really need, only to try and fill a void that continues to grow with every meaningless purchase. We get our quick fix until next time we need to fill this void.

Now what happens is this becomes a pattern in our life and soon becomes our being. We become the walking dead. We have allowed ourselves to be led away from the true essence and beauty of life, into a meaningless life of unfulfilled needs.

This is why the world is the way it is today. Things that are meaningless go on to be in the land fills and things that have meaning last forever. Then why not focus on the things that last forever?

All of us are being led away from what really counts and matters in life and into a life of greed, money, power, and control. These things are eating away at our souls and causing us to walk around dead.

This needs to change. Would you not agree? Are you sick of walking around feeling like a zombie? Then stop. Start focusing on the things that matter in life. Start focusing on; justice, peace, truth, beauty, love, and Jesus.

Maria Robinson says, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
