Would Jesus Be Ashamed of What We W

Would Jesus Be Ashamed of What We Watch on T.V.?


Do you accept the ungodliness on t.v.?

I can't believe what many

Christians watch and see.

Every sort of wickedness and

lust is now on the screen.

How can one be Godly,

when their eyes are “unclean?”

Our body is to be the temple

of the Holy Spirit.

It's one thing to say...  Another to live it!

Let’s be careful of what we allow

our families to watch!

Godliness in the household must be taught.

Cling to that which is wholesome,

virtuous and good.

Let’s watch the kind of shows only

a child of God should.

The temptations on television

try to allure.

Let’s think on thoughts that

are clean and pure.

What kind of choices in our

lives have been made?

Are we living in victory?

Or television's slave?

Remember that for us, our savior

came and died.

It’s living 100% for Jesus that we’re

truly satisfied!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
