Reflecting on entertainment.
I was a music lover growing up. I loved Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, Daft Punk, Backstreet Boys, soft rock music, and the occasional R&B. I used to keep abreast of my favorite musicians so when they drop new music, I’ll be the first to hear/get it. I would stay up late, my eyes glued to the TV screen watching movies until I fell asleep. I also used to write songs and I almost joined a record company in Michigan (?) as a songwriter. I’m glad that did not work out. It took me a while to open my ears to realize that the music I was listening to was not glorifying God.
It’s pretty hard for me to listen to music now. I gave away my Michael Jackson CD collection and it was not even hard to do. I don’t miss it. I don’t even look back and go ‘Man, I wished I had kept them!” I also threw out music from Madonna, Def Leppard, Ciara etc. I listen to hymns and spiritual songs, but I also have to be aware of some of these so-call Christian artists. Now and then, I’ll listen to a song with clean and pleasing lyrics.
I am now down to two TV shows which is Criminal Minds and Riverdale. A few months ago, I mentioned that I was losing my interest in movies. I watch movies once in a blue moon now if it holds my interest. The last movie I saw was American Made and I haven’t watched any movies since then.
Now, when I want to be entertained, I pick up my Bible.
