Scripture of the Week

"Finally, brothers, 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." Phil 4:8

I've been on vacation for the last week, and enjoying myself immensely. Nothing too fancy, no grand destinations, no grand plans- and that was the predesigned beauty of it all. Just a chance to rest and recharge. Last night, I chose to rent a movie that most of my preschool class has that was marketed to the younger crowd. I won't name any names, that's not the point. What is? I watched this movie, and was appalled at the language and off color jokes. I walked away with this verse in my head. Do we apply it to our tv viewing? movies? video games?

Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not perfect. I have what I call bubblegun shows- no point, very little plot, but they're fun. But they are also the type of shows that you don't think about again. I'm still thinking about the movie from last night. My plea, this week, is an encouragement- do you moniter your video intake...for yourself, and your children? As you are monitering it for your children, do you explain to them why they are not watching a certain show--what you find questionable? Some day, they will be making these choices, on their own. Are you training them to make wise choices?
