The TV Lover's Psalm 23

The following little ditty is copied.  Contrary to the sentence under the title below, the majority of Christians do NOT believe most of this.  If they did, they wouldn't own a television.  They would keep far away from it. Can you get on your knees and earnestly thank God for that thing, and for the blessing it is on your life, how it helps you to grow in your walk with the Lord, and for the good character it is building in your children?  I didn't think so.  I couldn't either.

What the Bible Says About Television

(The version of Psalm 23 believed by most Christians today)

The TV is my shepherd, I shall not want,

It makes me lie down on the sofa; it leads me away from the faith.

It destroys my soul; it leads me in the paths of fornication and violence for the sponsor’s sake.

Yea though I walk in the shadow of Christian responsibilities there will be no interruption, for the TV is with me, its cable and remote they comfort me.

It prepares a commercial for me in the presence of all my worldliness, it anoints my head with humanism and consumerism, my coveting runneth over.

Surely insignificance and ignorance shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house watching TV forever.

    I've never read that. It's hilarious. Definitely true of anything we let rule us over God.

  2. Hi Sally! Yes the TV like any other thing that we allow ourselves to spend too much time involved with can surely come between us and our Lord. To be effective disciples of Christ we must be discplined, always listening for His leading and not letting the distractions of this world become just that. Fantastic post, I needed this, thanks.

    I'm glad the kids thought it looked fun here. We are having a huge problem with ticks right now. It is also the time of year when we will start seeing scorpions in the house! I have a friend that lived in Pheonix for a short time and she said that the scorpions are more venomous there. I can't imagine!

    Have a great day.

    Blessings, Julie
