What Would Jesus Watch?

Okay, so you're standing at a movie rental kiosk and scanning through the newest titles. Do you ask yourself, "What would Jesus watch?" if we were hanging out tonight.

I'm drawn to movies that are based on true accounts, have a powerful message, are feel-good, tickle my funny bone, romantic, and are family-friendly.

Lately I'm having a hard time finding anything that's worthwhile and adds to my life. I really have to seek out a good one, which sometimes means up to thirty minutes. Then I think, I could be doing something else, because time is precious.

Your ear and eye gates are to be guarded at all times—if you haven't grasped the seriousness of that as a Christian (Follower of Christ) you soon will. We must always keep in check that our attractions (entertainment selections) push us in the right direction, and never sidetrack or send us on a detour.

Having said that, we have all made wrong choices or perhaps agree for another's sake. No matter the case, afterwards we feel grieved and sometimes convicted. Hopefully we learn from those mistakes and make better choices. Perhaps we even find the courage to speak up that it's not our preference. Otherwise, if continued on a detour filled with choices that Jesus wouldn't make, could prove harmful to us.

Guard the gates!

2 Peter 3

"Therefore, dear friends, since you already know this, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of lawless men and fall from your secure position." 2 Peter 3:17
