I have often blamed television for the break down of the family. That wasn’t the problem. I remember television as family unity – at first. Small houses, television in the den could be seen from the kitchen. Put on “I Love Lucy” or “Ozzie and Harriet” and everybody watched, made comments, and laughed together. Parents could even use the story to teach some lessons regarding fun and good manners.
The problem began with the TV Tray and bigger houses.
Well, yes, I am older than TV trays! I remember how much I wanted some. I think I remember getting a set with Green Stamps.
TV tray life style produced the malnourished child above. Maybe not malnourished from food; malnourished from family.
So many evil ways develop from innocent gateways! The devil is a deceiver and the master of lies. He is much more likely to appear beautiful and alluring than with red horns and a pitchfork. Avoid him if possible. If you can’t do that, stand up to him in the name of Jesus. Refuse his candy and roses. James Garfield said, ““A brave man is a man who dares to look the Devil in the face and tell him he is a Devil.”.
