Switch on the TV, pick up any magazine, and you’d be surprised how many programs and articles there are devoted to improving our modern life styles.
How to improve one’s home, one’s garden, how to dress better, have a more stylish car, lose weight, be a better cook, etc … etc … The list seems endless on how we can become more sophisticated and more accepted in today’s stylish society.
But I haven’t seen anything said about how we can improve ourselves, our inner being, our very soul.
Nothing said about how we can become kinder to others, more generous, loving, attentive, caring, and so on.
Too difficult I suppose. And not as instant as putting a bit of paint on one’s face or wearing some fancy clothes.
But then, Sunday sermons are supposed to cater for our inner selves, aren’t they?
OK, if you happen to go to church. But don’t put something like that on TV … it won’t attract the viewers my dear … nor sell copy in magazines!
