One thing I have noticed lately (even though it's been going on for quite some time) is how infatuated people get with these reality shows. The Kardashians, The Bachelor, and that new Mama June show are just a few examples. Even that "cash me outside" girl is getting a show.....really?? Today's society tends to (for lack of a better term) "make stupid people famous." This irritates me to no end!! Why are people so quick to applaud ignorance and condone immorality?
What would I like to see? Everyone focus their attentions elsewhere! All this time wasted on reality shows could be used to spend time with family, friends, or even God. Imagine what this world would be if we chose to spend less time worrying about famous people's lives and more time focusing on our own lives!!!! My wife and I haven't had cable in years and it's been a HUGE relief! We have had more time to focus on our church and our friendships, and it has given us a purpose! Unplug. Refocus. Reenergize!
This world is hurting, and sometimes I think there are folks out there who would like to take the role of Nero and play the violin while it all burns down around them. What kind of attitude is that? Why fuel the fires of hatred and ignorance when you could fuel the fires in your heart? Learn to love others, love God, and love yourself! Focus less on what you can't control and more on the tangible, and your life will be blessed for it.
