Every day, every hour, every minute of your span of mortal years must sometime be accounted for. And it is in this life that you walk by faith and prove yourself able to choose good over evil, right over wrong, enduring happiness over mere amusement. And your eternal reward will be according to your choosing.
Most every night I read a bit from ancient scripture and a bit from modern scripture. Last night I read this and it was a very important slap in the face for me. I've been watching a lot of TV lately. And by a lot I mean A LOT.
Its been excessively hot around here, and my house doesn't have AC. I've been leaving windows and blinds closed, keeping all lights off, saving laundry and dishes for the night, and avoiding the stove/oven at all costs... all to keep it 84* in my house. So instead of finding other productive things to do I've just been watching a lot of shows via Netflix. Which would probably be fine if I could do TV in moderation, but when I find a show I like I get OCD about it and I have to watch all of the available episodes. For example, there are 5 seasons worth of Psych on Netflix. I've watched all of them, in under a two month time frame. Seriously. That's like 80 hours of my life spent on watching a show.
I'm giving up TV for awhile. Maybe a long while. It isn't serving me.
