Saturday Morning TV…If You Dare…

Television captures (literally) the audience so commercials can convenience the viewer to buy products. Not sure who coined the phrase “electronic baby sitter” but the phrase fits today’s media. Just think about how this has even morphed itself into DVD players built into cars so the kids in the back seat can be ‘entertained.’ Parenting did not get easier with electronics – just more complicated.

Poltergeist-movieHave you watched Saturday morning TV lately?
In a while?
Ever?

Saturday morning television (and, I’m sure, Sunday through Friday too), is not quite what it used to be in the olden days. Since my grandkids have lived with me, I’ve seen weird talking sponges, bunnies and squirrels using cell phones, human families with wild superpowers, princesses and pirates, and idiotic starfish, to name a few.

Yes, there are ever-increasing varieties of gray and cadet blue floating around between the two, allowing us to find a comfortable medium, but the reality is, as my friend Yoda says, “Do or Do Not. There Is No Try.”

This kind of cold reality does little to boost waivering egos. From kindergarten soccer players to ACT test takers, the world’s pressure to be a winner vs. a loser makes the grey evening darker and more obtuse.

How, then, in this truly black and white world, do we find — and retain — a healthy dose of ego? Of self worth? We merely need to how to play…

Faith

Faith is believing in the unseen. Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as “the is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

I thought I would share this post about faith from one of my blog followers.
