Woodlawn Family Bible Study
BIBLE READING: Ephesians 4:17-19
MAIN IDEA: “What entertains me?”
If we, as parents and grandparents, don’t guide the young, then how do they know where to go? Children doing and behaving in a good way is not something they are born with (Genesis 8:21). We must train them in a way that will please God (Proverbs 22:6). When it comes to entertainment, today’s society offers too much. How can a child know what is good or bad for them without your help? Many will get a lot of “help” from their peers. No matter what we do, this will happen. Our responsibility is to show them what is right.
Don’t be part of the problem by the example you set. What is being allowed into your home through TV, Radio, Internet, and phones? Don’t think you’re hiding what you say and your attitude from little ears either. The more we allow into our home as questionable, “OK” entertainment, the more calloused our hearts become to that “OK” threshold.
APPLICATION: Have you calloused your heart to inappropriate entertainment?
