The 23rd Channel

The TV is my shepherd,
I shall not want.

It maketh me to lie down
on the sofa.

It destroyeth my soul.

It leadeth me in the path of sex
and violence - for the sponsor’s sake.

Yea, though I walk in the shadow of
Christian responsibilities - there will be
no interruptions, for the TV is with me.

Its cable and remote control,
they comfort me.

It prepareth a commercial for me
in the presence of my worldliness.

It anoints my head
with humanism and consumerism.

My coveting runneth over.

Surely, laziness and ignorance shall
follow me all the days of my life,

And I shall dwell in the house -
watching TV forever.

Whether we like it or not, the words of this poem
are true.  I used to be a couch potato myself.

But I believe there comes a time in every person's
life when we need to just step back and evaluate
the things we might be doing that are displeasing
to God, hindering our relationship with Him.

We need to get our priorities in line, stay focused
on the important things that really matter,
and be ready to meet Him when He comes!

The 23rd Psalm

The Lord is my shepherd,
That's Relationship!

I shall not want.
That's Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
That's Refreshment!

He restoreth my soul.
That's Healing!

He leadeth me in the
paths of righteousness
That's Guidance!

For his Name's Sake.
That's Purpose!

Yeah, thou I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death,
That's Challenge!

I will fear no evil;
That's Assurance!

For thou art with me.
That's Faithfulness!

Thy rod and thy staff,
they comfort me.
That's Shelter!

Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies.
That's Hope!

Thou anointest my head with oil.
That's Consecration!

My cup runneth over.
That's Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me all the days of my life,
That's Blessing!

And I shall dwell in the
house of the Lord
That's Security!

That's Eternity!
Is the TV your shepherd?
Thank You, Lord, For I Am Blessed!
