Family Entertainment

Recently I blogged about movie reviews. Like me, you probably are shocked at much that is on TV and in the movies. When considering what you and your family should be watching, you may ask yourself, “How much is too much?”

As I pointed out in the previous blog, perhaps instead of “how much is too much,” we should ask ourselves, “Is this a positive thing for our lives or our children’s lives? Does it teach us something? Does it leave us with worthwhile thoughts or ideas? Is it healthy, harmless entertainment? Would we invite Jesus to watch it or listen to it with us?”

In Philippians 4:8  we are admonished to “Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise” (NLT). Let this, instead of “how much bad is too much,” be our guide.

One way to evaluate the movies is to check out movie reviews with a Christian perspective. Another way is to purchase or rent videos from a company with Christian goals. Once such company I just added to Find Christian Links is Pure Flix. Here is what Pure Flix has to say: “Our mix of family-friendly and wholesome entertainment includes movies for all ages, kid’s animated titles, documentaries, how-to’s, hobbies, educational, health & fitness, sports, outdoors and travel plus many inspirational and devotional titles. We provide a wholesome viewing experience for your entire family. We believe that given a choice, people want to be able to stream wholesome, family-friendly titles that carry a great message.”

I hope you will check them out. You may also want to check other options to buy, rent, and stream here.
