When it comes to books, movies and television, many of us have had our guilty pleasures at one time or another. I sure have. There comes a point though when we can’t reconcile consuming junk and then turning around and putting out goodness.
There’s comes a point when God answers our prayer to “search me O Lord,” and He asks us to take a hard look at what we let in to our hearts and minds.
It is also important not to be snobby or condescending to others regarding their choices. Find a way to communicate or live out your preferences with quiet humility. There’s usually a way to let people know what you’re about without making them feel like they’re going straight to you-know-where. Then again, there are always going to be some people who feel like you’re judging them no matter how gracefully and quietly you opt out of something. That reaction is due to those little pokes and prods of conscience rather than anything you’ve said or done.
