No Vile Thing

"I will walk in my house with blameless heart.  I will set before my eyes no vile thing."  --King David (Psalms 101:2b-3a)

Our homes should be havens from the world's influence.  Nothing that enters our homes--TV, internet, CD's, DVD's, books, magazines, conversations--should be vile in God's eyes.  Nothing that enters our homes should entice our hearts or minds to be anything but blameless before God.  To this end, we should carefully screen and, if need be, eliminate harmful influences.  Such an approach in this world will be viewed by many as unrealistic, backwards, reactionary, foolish.  But our preeminent concern is not what the world thinks.  Our concern is what our holy God--who sees and knows all--thinks.
