Be careful little eyes what you see…

27th April 2009

Be careful little eyes what you see…

Do you remember that song? From your toddlerhood?

Be careful little eyes what you see

Be careful little eyes what you see

For your Father up above

Is looking down with love

Oh be careful little eyes what you see

Recently I have been very aware of what I’m watching on telly or listening to on the radio when the children are around. It’s not that I’m watching anything I’d be ashamed to watch around my grandma, but I’m aware that there are lots of things that I watch or listen to that I wouldn’t want my kids to see or hear. Handsome and I are working hard to be sure that they are being raised in the fear and admonition of the Lord and we try to control what they’re exposed to because, frankly, they’re really young.

So while I’ve been careful to change the radio station from country music to KLOVE while we’re in the car and make sure we don’t watch Fringe until the kids are actually asleep in bed, God has been talking to my heart. I’ve bee hearing things like…

Michele, if it’s not good enough for your kids to watch, why are you watching?

Michele, is that song worthy or admirable or lovely?

Michele, what valuable thing is this television show teaching you?

And don’t get the idea that I spend a lot of time watching TV. We don’t actually have a TV so we watch online. Our big computer is in the school room so I’m often on my computer doing other things and watching at the same time. I never watch during the day and rarely without Handsome being there. But still. Is this the best use of my time? Is God honoured by the programmes I watch?

So. That’s where I’m at. If we actually had a TV I’d probably be selling it about now. Since we don’t I do believe that I’ll be finding other projects to do in the evenings or at least being very very selective about what I watch.

I’d be interested to hear your opinions. Do you watch television? What do you watch? Are you ever concerned about your kids coming in at the wrong time?
