Much Ado About Pippa's bum

Do you remember the  Royal wedding of  Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011? It was a real life fairy tale about rich prince meets non-royal but still rich More importantly, I do remember the furore that was made about the chief bride's maid Pippa Middleton's rear end. The international media went on a frenzy about Pippa's behind as she walked behind the bride.

 For a brief moment, the world was more focused on the younger Middleton's backside than the lavishness and pomp that symbolised the royal wedding. People quickly forgot the purpose of the live broadcast and focused on something else in the twinkle of an eye.

 I want to believe the creative mind that is today's generation can be stirred by something more than a butt but who am I kidding However the attention fizzled out as quickly as it sprung.  Something else is driving the media today. Another day another drama. Pippa's backside enjoyed its brief moment in the news. Next news please.
Popular culture is transient. What's in vogue today will not necessarily make tomorrow's headlines. It's no surprise celebrities outdo themselves to remain relevant and in the news. Fact is, every desperate act will be outdone by another desperate act but none will last for ever no matter how outlandish it might be.
We rush after fashion and fads that are here and gone tomorrow, leaving no lasting impression but a distant memory soon easily forgotten.
Once upon a time Kate moss's boyish frame was the rave of the fashion industry. Fast forward several years and the world is craving  women with curves and all what's not.  Today's headlines is history tomorrow. So what's the ado?
" The world and its desires will pass away but whoever does the will of God lives forever" 1 John 2:17.  Focus on what really matters. Give attention to issues with eternal values "why spend money on what is not bread and your labour on what does not satisfy? Listen to me and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the finest food" Isaiah 55:2.  Don't be carried away by fickle trends. like strangers in the night they soon go by. Need I say  more?.
