One day I was picking up my grandson at school. In his car seat was his favorite stuffed animal – a wolf named Wolfy. As he got into the car, he said, ’Wolfy, I missed you today”. So, I said, “what about me?” He replied, “BooPa, it is not always about you!”. (He calls me BooPa). Wow. It can’t always be about me. Who is it about? The world says it is about me and there is no care or thinking of others. The Bible says it is not about me. Paul, in Romans 15:1-2 says,“ We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up.” We are responsible to take care of others and not always think of ourselves. Are we influencing others or is this world transforming us away from God. What do we put into our minds – foul language or explicit sex scenes?

For TV we use an antenna and pay for Disney and Prime only. Prime gives us Amazon Prime movies. Total for both is about $15 per month. Recently, prime has been releasing a number of movies and the last six or seven have all been rated R. My wife and I have committed not to watch R movies. The only exception the movie “The Passion”.

Actually, many PG-13’s are now almost like R’s. Also, very few G movies anymore. Where do you and I draw the line. We draw the line in movies we watch, books we read and company we keep. Ask God what line you need to stop at?
