"Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path." Psalm 119:105

Let me ask you a few questions, would your life be better if you were more influenced by Hollywood and less influenced by the Holy Word? Or, would you benefit from more time and attention devoted to the Holy Word and less to Hollywood?

The Psalmist declared that the Holy Word gave clarity to his journey and a direction for his life.

Does Hollywood (movies, music, media, and Madison Avenue) give you similar clarity and direction?

If you believe the Holy Word enriches your life more than Hollywood, you should be devoting more time and attention to His Word than to TV, movies, video games, and music.

Where are you spending the major portion of your time?

Watching one movie requires about two hours. Can you spend two hours studying the Word? 

Does listening to your music clarify your reality and help you do what's right? 

If you acknowledge the Holy Word enriches your life more than Hollywood, do you need to be spending more time reading the Holy Word?

Are you spending time being entertained by Hollywood or investing time in being edified by the Holy Word?

When the Psalmist declared the importance of the light he receives from God's Word he is also acknowledging the darkness that surrounds him apart from the Word.

If the Holy Word brings light, what does Hollywood bring?

Which dominates your life the darkness or the light?

Just trying to throw some light on the subject.
