A grocery store in New York City recently launched a man-aisle for “shopping challenged dudes!”
The grocery store is responding to the changing demographics of grocery store shopping where men are shopping more. If you are like me, you get lost when you attempt to find your way around the grocery store for necessary items. (other than Blue Bell)
The “Man-Aisle” is a place where a man can walk to one aisle and get BBQ sauce, chips, steak sauce, razors, deodorant, water, soap, shampoo and almost anything else a guy would need for his man cave.
All this with the convenience of only walking a few feet. Let’s be honest, one-stop shopping for your daily needs channeled into a small amount of space is a great idea! (for both men and women)
So often we amble through the stages and cycles of our lives. The advice we would seek in our teens is different from the advice we would seek when we have teenagers in the house. We can turn to the myriad of books lining the shelves of bookstores, and we can ask everyone we know for guidance, but God has made it easy for us. All the knowledge, encouragement and direction we need for any of life’s experiences is consolidated into one great book! THE BIBLE. Regardless of what you are going through or how confusing life gets for you, your answer is found right there in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
So, do not forget to do some biblical shopping today, after all, “it’s a lamp unto your feet and light unto your path.”
