I don't like television. It robs people of their imaginations and squanders precious time. In Psalm 101:3, David says, "I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless." I think of that verse often when I find myself staring at the nonsense on the tube. The most annoying shows are the annual strokefests known as award shows featuring one celebrity after another talking about how "amazing" so and so is for his/her performance in a movie/show. Or how "great" some musician is for his/her new album - all highly produced of course.
But out there in the real world of poverty, pain, oppression, and suffering, toil the real heros on this earth. They give their all to heal the sick and along with that, they hope to "bring good news to the poor; ... to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and to open the prison to those who are bound;" (Isaiah 61:1)
When all is said and done, these servants of Jesus will enter the gates of the Kingdom of Christ hoping that they have been a blessing to the people they have served in this life and hoping to hear Jesus say, "Well done good and faithful servant!"
