A Good Rule?

I've been thinking about a personal discipline practiced by the senior pastor who did a lot to mentor me thirty years ago. He would not spend more time watching TV than he spent in personal biblical reflection and prayer plus corporate worship.

So, if he was in church services a total of three hours per week and spent an hour per day in personal devotion, he would not watch more than 10 hours per week watching TV.

What if all Christians in our society embraced that standard? I think personal spiritual practices would grow and TV time would shrink (big time).

And I think our churches would be renewed!!
