<<amusement, leisure activity>>
Our values determine how we spend our leisure time
influence to warp our values and condition us to the godless ways of the world, indoctrinating us with its evil. With the exception of Christian programs, news bulletins and documentaries, the remainder of this medium is largely saturated with sex, violence, and unharmonious interpersonal relationships. Don’t let entertainment shape your values as what we allow to invade our minds, capture our attention and consume our energy during our times of relaxation requires serious scrutiny – does it bring you closer to Christ or separate you from Him? Would you be embarrassed if you could visibly see Jesus with you? “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31).
We should endeavour to make all things serve our purpose and calling in life. The enemy is out to tempt us to sin and be less effective and committed to the cause of Christ (Mt 6:24; 1 Pet 5:8). Don’t let him win the battle with you.
