My family and I don’t watch TV, but we’re well informed about all the topics and trends that take place in society. We discuss everything together, we have a variety of news sources we access, and we research anything from DIY to art and science on the web, in books and such.
Did you know, entertainment is not a concept in the Bible? Nowhere in the Bible does it say that we should have fun or entertain ourselves. Of course that doesn’t mean we cannot enjoy ourselves- but it is wise if we use our time for relaxing and enjoyment with things that are useful, constructive and honor the Lord, keeping in mind the verse
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. (Phil 4:8)
Therefore, we enjoy youtube because there is a wide, wide variety of topics on there, and you can be really selective with what you watch and at the same time cultivate a lot of new knowledge and enjoy yourself!
