After the previous post regarding vampires, it has got me thinking. A lot. What comes in, will come out. No matter what it is! No matter how much we think it is not affecting us. One facebook commenter had this to say:
Ouch! Conviction straight to the core over here! Every family needs to evaluate how much social media they allow into their home. For our family, we have an average size flat screen television. Others choose to remove television completely from their home. I truly don’t think one is better than the other.
But what I DO believe is, we could all do well to spend a whole lot more time in our BIBLE, rather than in front of the television or computer screen.
Whatever you do for your family, is right for your family. If the Lord is convicting you through reading His Word, that a certain show, movie, book, drink, or online viewing sampling is not glorifying to Him….
BE OBEDIENT. It is not my job to judge another brother or sister. On this blog I am free to share my opinion. That is the right of the blog owner. But I’m not here to judge you.
Truth is, we ALL have our own “pet sins”. We all struggle with sin, just maybe in a different light than our neighbor.
As I was reading the bible this morning, Galatians 6:7-8 hit me square between the eyes.
Am I thinking negative thoughts about my husband? Negative thoughts can turn into coveting or lusting after what is not mine.
Am I gossiping to my friend about another person? I am cultivating a breeding ground of hatred and strife.
Am I more concerned with fantasy than reality? If so, I may be neglecting the very people that God has called me to serve… the people right in my home!
