Selling ourselves

Just when you thought that advertisers had exhausted all possibilities, Andrew Fischer, a web page designer, came up with a new idea. He decided to auction off his forehead on e Bay, and actually attracted a great deal of interest. The highest bidder was the snoring remedy, SnoreStop, who agreed to rent the blank space above Andrew’s eyes for thirty days, earning him thirty seven thousand three hundred and seventy five dollars. SnoreStop’s Chief Executive Officer described Fischer as “a man who clearly has a head for business.”
Well, selling our foreheads may not be as easy as it was for Andrew, but it reminds me of that great warning Jesus gave about how easy it is for us to sell our souls. “What can a man give in exchange for his soul. Even if you were to gain the whole world, you’ll lose in the end.”
