There is so much inappropriate language and actions shown on TV shows, movies and songs that it makes me cringe to think of all that my children are exposed to on an everyday basis.
My husband and I had almost become numb to all of the foul language and impure behavior until our children were old enough to start watching TV and movies with us. It was then that we realized we really needed to be watchful about what we were allowing even our adult selves to see and hear. We stopped watching R rated movies and got rid of most of our heavy metal music.
I think our children’s pastor said it best when she told the kids “Garbage in, Garbage out.” Some people think that I go overboard because I like to surround myself and my children with Christian music and wholesome TV and movies. I however, think that it is extremely important to be a role model and teach my children that it isn’t ok to just accept that the world is impure and indulge in all of it. I want to be an example to show them that as God’s child, I choose to stay true to what is right, to be watchful of spiritual danger, and to stand firm in my faith.
Scripture: Keep a close watch on all you do and think. Stay true to what is right and God will bless you and use you to help others. ~1 Timothy 4:16
Prayer: Savior, keep my children watchful for spiritual danger, courageous to do what is right, and useful to you to help others. Amen.
