DBR Thought of the Day ~ Television (Isaiah 33:15-16)

As we come upon the onslaught of television programming, I hope we can head these words from the book of Isaiah. I pray that I can stop my ears from hearing bloodshed and shut my eyes from looking on evil. There are hardly any shows that are pleasing to The Lord and I would bet he would consider it all trash. God is a jealous God and wants our time for him, not mindlessly in front of the TV. Next time you are watching a show, any show, or newscast, or sporting event, ask yourself, “If Jesus came back at this by moment, would I be proud or ashamed?”

Isaiah 33: 15-16
15 He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly,
who despises the gain of oppressions,
who shakes his hands, lest they hold a bribe,
who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed
and shuts his eyes from looking on evil,
16 he will dwell on the heights;
his place of defense will be the fortresses of rocks;
his bread will be given him; his water will be sure.

Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love incorruptible. (Eph. 6:24)
Maranatha! (Come, Lord Jesus!)
