Plugged In Online

a Biblical thought...
And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)

a Book thought...
When travelling for work leave notes for your children before you go. Hide them in their school bag or under their pillows letting them know how much you love them or letting them know you know what's going on in their lives. (p130)
a Dave thought...
This week I was shown a very informative website that informs you about the themes and content of current movies and TV shows. After seeing District 9 this week I read up on the content to discover the F word was used over 130 times! Obviously the one of the ideas of this site is to inform your choices before you see the movie, including exactly what scenes take place, what themes are explored and what words are used.

Plugged In is a Focus on the Family publication designed to help equip parents, youth leaders, ministers and teens with the essential tools that will enable them to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which they live. Entertainment is a potent influence on our culture for both good and evil. Through our reviews and discussions of that entertainment, we hope to spark intellectual thought, family discussion, spiritual growth and a strong desire to follow the command of Colossians 2:8. "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ."

Just a thought.
