So Many Billboards

June 10, 2021

With just enough time in between
To decipher what they might mean
.
Figuring too their expressed intent
So companies can collect the rent
.
UNSETTLED??
.
Jesus offers stability
.
1 Corinthians 3 11
.
There are so many ways to
Read or read into this ad
.
Is it an ad for a home contractor
Who does earthquake retrofitting?
.
(Like if it were attached to other
Radio and TV ads might sound)
.
“Did the most recent earthquake
Bring shakiness to your world?”
.
Call Jesus he can earthquake proof
Your home offering stability
.
Dial 1-COR-INT-HIAN Offer code 3 11
.
Perhaps not
.
I’ve heard Jesus’s stepfather was
A carpenter doesn’t mean he is
.
Maybe…..1 corinthians 3 11 is a
Bible passage,  will check it out
.
“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
.
Hmmm, not feeling anymore stable
.
More confused rather
Wish I kept my Cracker Jack
Super decoder ring
.
To do thorough research for this post
I kept my eye out for this billboard
It is hard to catch every nuance at
65 mph and watch the road and traffic
.
It has a photograph of a person with
Their head in their hands facing down
As the background to the large font
Eye catching headline UNSETTLED?
.
(More disturbed, in an era focused on
Not driving distracted, there are more and
More things to read from the highway)
.
On the last trip by the billboard
Noticed a barely noticeable
Logo and “something” ministries
That must have paid for the ad
.
Wouldn’t it be better if the money
From the collection plate went straight
To helping people in need, instead of
Sending cryptic messages via billboards
.
Then maybe the people helped would be
Inspired to live the Master’s teachings
.
(You know, somebody somewhere is
Beaming at their clever sign and “message”
.
Not sure how that passage offers stability
.
“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
.
1 Corinthians 3 11
.
Except that the “ministrie’s” congregates
Can lure more congregants to fill the
Collection plate to put up more signs
.
I’m going with my earthquake theory
.
“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”
.
