Proverbs, James, and the Groupon Super Bowl Commercial

leave a comment »

You may have seen this Groupon commercial, which was broadcasted during the Super Bowl this past Sunday:

The following are some Scriptures that came to mind after I watched it for the first time:

“So God created man in His own image…” Genesis 1:27a.

“Riches do not profit in the day of wrath…” Proverbs 11:4.

“With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor…” Proverbs 11:9.

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:34.

“Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him.” Proverbs 14:31.

“Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues with injustice.” Proverbs 16:8

“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud.” Proverbs 16: 19.

“Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death is the man who deceives his neighbor and says, ‘I am only joking!'” Proverbs 26:19.

“Whoever meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears.” Proverbs 26:17.

“Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted, and your garments are moth-eaten.  Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire.  You have laid up treasure in the last days.  Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts. You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence.  You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.”  James 5:1-5
