Troublesome Topic: Don’t Seek to Satisfy Self

Lesson 2 of 14

Our desire to be entertained is dangerous because it opens us up for many temptations since the search for entertainment is usually a search to satisfy self, which easily degrades into a search to satisfy our sinful nature.

I know that things like the internet, cell phones and TVs are simply tools which can be used in a beneficial way or in a destructive way. The tools themselves are not truly good or bad; however some of the content they offer us is definitely bad.

I know that some people use the internet simply for work or educational purposes and refrain from using it to entertain themselves. That is not what I am addressing in this section; I am talking about the use of these things in order to entertain ourselves.

Our purpose should be to glorify God, not to satisfy self.
