I recently saw an add on TV that caught my attention, as many do. This one, however, seemed to stand out from the rest. Yes, it is about a soda and all that, but the message behind it is powerful. Take a quick watch to these two versions of the ad for yourself, then I will dive in a bit:
So for a moment, set aside the face that this is for Dr. Pepper (however delicious it may be) and think about the general message of the ad…”/1.” The first song says it best, “one of a billion…and that is something beautiful.”
We are each the person we are, and that is the only person we can be. No matter how hard we may try to be someone else, we cannot be. Instead of trying to be someone we are not, we need to embrace who we are and what we can do.
Not only is this the message in this particular ad, it is one of the messages in the Bible as well. We can see this in Psalm 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Even the Bible, God’s Word, tells us that we are all one of a kind.
Embrace who you are, for you are one of a kind, or, as the ad says…. /1.
Enjoy being you!
