Luke 11: 34-36, Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness. See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark. It will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.
How much light is your body full of today? Are you striving to be more like God by feeding your heart and mind the things you should be feeding it? It is so easy to get caught up in a tv show to the point where that is a lot of what you talk about. Are you that consumed with God and His word?
You may not be feeding it porn or watching bad shows or reading bad things, it’s a matter of feeding it more about God. If you are feeding it things that you know you shouldn’t be now is the time to get on your knees and ask God to take those desires away from you and to give you strength and convictions to remove anything wrong from your home. Your home can’t be full of God if you are choosing things that are not of God.
God’s direction and blessing for your life are only found in Him. It cannot be found in anything else. How are you spending your spare time? Are you pursuing Him or a new show to binge-watch? I would encourage you to pursue Him with your whole heart so you can be full of His light so others are drawn to Him. Be a light to your children and to those you have a direct influence on in life. The world is a dark place and needs the light of God. Pursue Him and His light! Pursue Him to the point where you are talking about Him all the time. The Bible tells us in Joshua 1:8, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Spend time getting to know Him more. Don’t wait another day. Those characters on that tv show are not nearly as important as doing what God is leading you to do if that is not something you should be watching. It’s just a story, it will not affect the outcome of your life, but the Bible is the living breathing words of God and it will make all the difference in the outcome of not only your life but the lives of those around you!
