I'm a human.......?

I saw this guy on a windows commercial who said, I am a human being, not a human doing, not a human thinking, a human being....on the surface this seemed to me like a really neat idea, maybe it meant to not be a product, but rather, a person, but for whatever reason, it kinda stuck in my head...not a human thinking...that could mean not an idea, but a creator of ideas, but it could also mean not a thinking person just someone who's here...someone along for the ride...not trying to make waves..not a human doing...not a product, or maybe not doing anything to help the world around me become a better place...
How many times do we become so complacent with where we are, that we allow ourselves to get lazy and stop doing the things that Christ tells us to do....we're told to feed the hungry, heal the sick, give to the poor, but are we?
How many of us have money on us right now, while somewhere in the world there are people living on a dollar a day or less...
Rob Bell said in one of the Nooma videos, which I highly recommend, that some staticians figured out that the cost to provide water, food, shelter, just the basic needs for life, all over the entire world, would cost about 20 billion dollars, which is about the same as America on average spends on ice cream...
What are we doing?
What are we thinking?
What are we being?

  1. ice cream at the expense of starvation is probably not very human
