DAY 31: No News is good news
Today we will not watch or listen to any form of media besides
the Bible and your homework. Don't watch TV, listen to the radio,
read the newspaper, play CD's, go online, or go to the movies. Be
still, so you can hear the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10
- Use this time to get a fresh focus on God. You'll probably discover
how much you are addicted to the media. The question to ask is,
" How much does media control me?".
- When "USA Today" and "Teen People" asked
more than 100,000 U.S.
teens which (if any) forms of media they thought promoted violence to
their peers, 56% cited movies, 50% said video games, 45% cited the Internet, 44% said TV, 43% noted music and 34% cited news coverage. Fast all of these things today!
Fast all forms of media (unless needed for your work) and
use that time to read God's word, pray and "be still and know
that I am God."
For Your Journal
What happened today? What was the most difficult media to fast?
Did you accomplish the "media fast" all day and night?
