Man watching TV

No, this is not one of those TV-is-evil articles. This piece is meant to give you some valuable thoughts on whether you should really have a TV or not.

Here are a few things you should consider:

  • TVs can have good educational value. TV shows can convey useful knowledge.
  • Many programs often carry a one-sided message: violence, sexual promiscuity, godlessness.
  • Watching TV can take up a lot of valuable time that you could use better.
  • Certain programs can influence people for the better.

These are the main points that personally move me when I think about TV.

Also consider what you would do during the time you spend watching TV if you were doing something else. What seems more valuable to you?

Can TVs become idols that take up valuable space in your heart? You are a valuable person, how do you want to express that?

Personally, I regret how much time I spent in front of the TV during my childhood and youth. While our family owns one, it is rarely used, and when it is, it’s for consciously chosen programs.

I also understand if someone decides to do without one. You can really use the time for better things than absorbing all the meaningless entertainment.

Here are a few valuable TV channels you should check out if you want to lead a meaningful life:

Here you find an inspiring Bible verse:

“Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food. Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David. (Isaiah 55, 1 – 3)

I wish you great success on your journey – with or without a TV.
