Jesus Says; “Less t.v. And More Of Me!”
I remember as a kid, having our first color t.v.
Our family didn’t have to worry about what we’d see.
Respect and honor for another was often displayed.
Happy and healthy homes were often portrayed.
It seemed to mean something to have morals.
People didn’t seem to worship the immoral.
As I got older… Things seemed to get “out of hand.”
By the garbage being shown .
all over this land.
That which once respected as good and o.k.
Began to disappear, into an “immoral decay.”
I pray for my family and children’s lives.
They won’t be soaked with the sin and lies!
I want to watch that which promote spiritual health.
To cherish things of God, for his heavenly wealth!
I refuse to let wickedness be an example,
of how I should live.
I’m going to think about the good things
Christ has to give!
Rather than spending so much time watching an idol.
I’m going to pray and spend time reading the Bible!
As I’m older, I want my eyes to focus
more on the cross!
The less time I watch t.v.
is really not a big loss!
The most important thing that I can do…
Is to try to live the way Christ wants me to!
To live is Christ. To sacrifice is to gain.
Nothing compares to the beauty of HIS name!
Help me Jesus to keep my eyes focused on you alone!
I seek your blessing over my life and home!
