My wife Michele recently told our three year old that there are “good shows” and “bad shows” on TV so Reagan should “ask mommy whether she can watch a show or not.” Now almost every program that we watch is preceded by her asking, “Is this a good show, mommy?” It makes us laugh.
I thought I would be cute and clever the other night. (That usually spells trouble for me.) When a Victoria’s Secret (no link!) commercial came on I turned to my wife and asked, “Is this a good show, mommy?” She said “If you have to ask, It probably isn’t a good show for you to watch.”
It made me think that I should ask my heavenly father more often, “Is this a good show?” “Is this a good thought?” “Is this a good attitude?” I wonder what would happen…
17 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Luke 18:17 (NIV)
