Not the liberal-leaning network talk show.
The view from our couch.
The view of the television screen.
What a blessing a television is.
But something more is it...
It draws the children in like a moth to a flame.
It is a pied piper to many adults as well.
I posted a blog back in August about how we were cutting cable.
We did cut the cable, and we have stuck with it.
We do have "Netflix" though.
We have the plan with both streaming & with DVD's.
It has parental controls set up.
However, it is *still* full of messages we don't need coming into our home.
Lots of it.
I am a firm believer in "garbage in, garbage out".
This being said, I am a wimp.
I am ready to cut it off.
Just the streaming, not the DVD portion.
I don't want to deal with the disappointment that the kids will express.
I don't want the attitudes that will have to be disciplined.
Having trash coming in seems easier than dealing with my children being upset.
But just because it is easier, doesn't mean it's right.
As a matter of fact, it seems the easy way is most often not the right way.
Matthew 7:13 tells us:
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it".
Wide Gate, broad road...Leads to destruction.
Narrow Gate...not the easy way.
The easy way leads to destruction.
Allowing my kids to have things their way leads to...
So, we will cut Netflix too.
This stinks. But it will be worth it.
I love that RedBox is so cheap, and available too.
