Walk as children of light.

Over the course of my adult life I feel like my threshold for appropriateness has steadily climbed higher while the available entertainment has become increasingly smutty. It makes for a sparse selection. Luckily I'm not too big on TV or movies anyway (I'd rather do something). Anyhow, reading Ephesians 5 reminded me why I really should remain aloof from all of these things. It lists various sins that are unbecoming of saints, exhorting,

Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.   
Ephesians 5:7-12 (emphasis added)

  1. I've found the same thing - that my tolerance has lowered as the media continues to degenerate. Thanks for sharing these verses from Ephesians.
