Ashley and I had a great time with the students this Sunday! We started the discussion by asking the students what’s on their watch list for the summer. Some students are looking forward to binge watching Arrow, while other are eagerly anticipating the premier of The Incredible’s 2. We also asked what other media they will “consume” during their time off. YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, and Xbox games were some common answers.
Then, as I presented a tray of fudgy, frosted, delicious-looking brownies, I asked who would eat one if they knew I added in just a little bit of cat poop while baking them. Yep, you read that right. Cat poop. Most of the students turned away in disgust while others said they would still eat them! Yuck! Of course there was NO poop in the brownies (in fact, I didn’t even bake them)! I used that illustration to show the students that watching a movie or YouTube video with just a little bit of inappropriate content in it is like eating a brownie with just a little bit of cat poop.
What we consume physically and mentally affects us. I pointed them toward Philippians 4:8 as a great list of what we should fill our minds with.
Stay tuned for more details from Ashley.
Have a great week!
