What this 2018 Jollibee Commercial Reminds Us Of

Jollibee is taking over social media yet again. And in their latest viral video, Signs, we can learn three things.


1. Bawal mag assume! We all have been told, never assume. In love life, never assume that someone likes you especially if there are no signs of the other person liking you.

2. Signs are not enough, clarify! For ladies specifically, even if you think there seem to be signs from him, still never assume until he says so. And if he keeps showing signs yet not speak a thing, confront na yan... like a brother.

3. We have the need to be loved. I always remember what one of my Philosophy teachers said in one of his seminars, that a lot of people are not really in love with the person at the onset, "they're in love with the idea of love."

I think about that and realize he made sense. Coz many times, we find ourselves in a place where we have that need to be loved. And when we end up with someone who satisfies our need of such, we respond loving that person as well. I thank God for this design, He gives us people to fill that need. But I also thank God because while that design (people filling up our need to be loved) turns out to be insufficient, He chose to fill that need Himself.
This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God. 1 John 4:10 (MSG version)
Love how Jollibee points us to that reality, the reality that we need to be loved and that God meets this need. We are loved.
