This is seriously a big deal! My husband grew up with the TV on 24/7.
Hebrews 12:1-2 says,
"...Let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us,
... keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith..."
We decided that the only way to see the effect that TV had on us, was to totally eliminate it from our lives. So the TV has been unplugged and will remain that way until we get home from church next Sunday.
I'll let you know how it goes!
