I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me. – Psalm 101:3
Have you taken a look at the shows that are to première tonight? The only one that piqued my interest was one called “Quantico”, which I’m thinking is a spin-off the popular show “Criminal Minds”. Then I thought of how often that program upset me and got me scared just before bedtime – which – hello – that’s helpful. I’m sure “Quantico” is going to be cranked up a notch – it surely will be. Do I really need to set that before my eyes? I may be watching DVD’s tonight. Yes, they’re old and I’ve watched them a gazillion times – but they don’t give me nightmares!
Most of the new titles are either sexually suggestive or look uninteresting to me. Yes, I’m getting old – I admit it. Give me “Murder, She Wrote” DVD’s and a bowl of veggie dip and fresh veggies to snack on!
The shows of today and the techno-babble music… it’s lost me. I’m out. I was working out the other day to a song where the girl kept singing YOU DON’T MAKE ME HIGH ANYMORE. I try not to listen closely… but seriously – it was impossible to tune that out – it was repeated over and over and… OVER! You can put down the repeating of the choruses in church all you want – but in my humble opinion… they got that brilliant idea from the world.
When I’d finally heard the last annoying complaint that YOU DON’T MAKE ME HIGH ANYMORE… I said to myself… “Then let me tell ya, girlfriend… you are NOT ready to get married to one man for the rest of your life!” Just sayin’…
What an immature statement to make in a song – so-called song. A very long… redundant, repetitive song. Ugh.
A wicked plan or purpose is thus represented as having a tendency to fasten itself on a man, or to “stick to him”—as pitch, or wax, or a burr does. – Albert Barnes.
We have to be so careful about not only what we say and do, but what we take in. How many women listen to that song, that statement – and then decide that they should probably move on? You don’t know what action may be triggered in another person.
As you look for new TV shows to watch and new music to listen to, keep in mind this simple Bible verse. Don’t waste your time with anything worthless. Don’t let anything stick to you that does not feed your soul. Find something that makes your brain work a little bit. There’s something about helping a detective (or a mystery book writer) solve crimes… I get wrapped up in it and help Jessica Fletcher – even after all these years! 🙂
