Can you thank God for that?

I have had a number of conversations as of late on what we watch and what should be the filter Christians use to avoid certain imagery and issues in media. Kevin DeYoung asks the easiest question in the realm of what you choose to watch and hear; can you thank God for it?

“I’ve learned over the years that the simplest way to judge gray areas in the Christian life like movies, television, and music is to ask one simple question: can I thank God for this? (We are to give thanks in all circumstances, right?

“I wonder if after most of our entertainment we could sincerely get down on our knees and say, “Thank you God for this good gift.” Something to think about.”

Something for all of us to think about indeed.
