Watch Me!

1 Corinthians 11:1 is a fascinating verse that I used to think of as arrogance. How wrong i was! Paul says, "Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ."

If we are following the Savior the way we should - clearly, wholeheartedly and with pure intent to disciple - it is not arrogance to demonstrate that before someone. After all, we are demonstrating something to someone all the time. The question we need to continually ask is "What am I demonstrating?"

I linked a video to help demonstrate Paul's intent and show how we can do something similar.

A Convicting Window...

It used to be said that you could get a picture of a person's life by looking in their garage or their room and what was contained within and on the walls. I also heard one time that you could look inside one's refrigerator and open a similar window.

Today, when you look at the playlists on an iPod or iPhone or other device you get a picture of a person's soul. Music and media defines us, imprints us. What we choose to watch is a giveaway about what goes on inside.

The below media is a picture of the soul of our country - at least the younger set. Parents, we need to choose carefully what we allow as media choices for our children - for in time it will define them.
Below are the Top 10 videos in October, 2013. Look up some of the lyrics - you don't even have to watch the video. This is vicious and lascivious stuff. No matter what anyone says, lyrics do make the song. It matters what we take in, it really does. Choose well.
