Love does not rejoice in evil but rejoices in the truth." - 1 Corinthians 13:6

Dear Lord Jesus, in our culture this verse is particularly challenging. We are flooded with comedies on our televisions that showcase every kind of sexual innuendo and indiscretion that anyone could ever imagine and we are trained to laugh.  Dramas lead us to rejoice in revenge. It seems every station we click to is leading our hearts to indulge with a continual lust for the more absurd.  Help me to find the "off" button and to prayerfully and honestly be happier with the truth about life, love, purity and faithfulness than - than the lie.  Give me other things to do that bless and encourage my family and friends instead of wasting hours on questionable entertainment. I always feel better when I watch my intake as much as my outflow.  Help me love the good and to neglect the seedier side of our culture.  Thank you for giving me this desire.  I know that it is you working in my heart.  AMEN

"We must lead our hearts and not follow them."
