Snow Patrol aren't cool. They are like Travis and Embrace. Music for the people not very into music, people who buy one album a year and don't go to gigs. I was listening to them on the way home tonight. I was listening to a song called 15 minutes old. I love it. You see secretly I like Snow Patrol. But tonight while enjoying them my mind reminded me they weren't cool and I almost turned them off and thought wouldn't life be easier if there wasn't a 'cool' if things just were.
Truth is Im obsessed with cool. I want cool music, cool clothes, cool films. I want to be cool. And I'm not alone. Truth is when we go shopping we want cool things. We want to be cool. As a generation we value cool.
In Philippians 4 v 8 it says
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
I don't think it's wrong to like cool things. But I was thinking wouldn't life look different if we valued the things mentioned in the same way we value cool. Like If we could get it in our subconscious when we are talking, living, sleeping, dreaming so before our mind said 'is it cool?' it said 'is it true, noble, pure, right, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy?'
Wouldn't that be cool?
