My friends, I pray all is well with each of you. I can't help but to wonder why it is difficult to find suitable family shows on the television anymore. It is worse if a family only has the basic channels. I bring your attention to what I perceive as degradation of women on television. I know this is not anything new, I know it is no surprised, but what is astounding to me is that believers are the top supporters of many of these television shows. I dare say that some of these television shows that degrade women are watched and enjoyed, even Tivoed by women of God. We are looking for entertainment, we are looking for a good story line, a good ending, a good laugh. However, I do believe that what we watch on television should be no different than what we read or what we speak or how we walk.

Greetings, in the name of Jesus. Last Friday, I challenged a sister to a month of "prayer for workplace protection and no complaining". She told me that she already know that she cannot do this because she is just sinful by nature. Oh, how my blood pressure raised when she made the comment. I had to go in prayer to bite my tongue and I also prayed for her because obviously she has lost hope in Christ. The sad thing though, she is not the only one these days that are giving up or have given up on Christ. I would venture to say that there are a lot of people professing to be believers and followers of Jesus Christ, yet living in despair because they choose to not rely on the promises of Christ. Friends, 1 Peter 2:24 reminds us that, "Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." (KJV) Hallelujah. By Jesus' stripes, we are healed, yet, we choose to discount Christ.
