I can take a guess and say we all love music. Right? Music is one of the things that can be a big part of our lives, and whether we like it or not, it influences us. Often times a lot. It can be a good influence, it can be bad. But whichever it is, we are the ones who choose to listen to it. It’s a matter of godly discipline.
There is the pure, good music that we all love. The songs of praise and worship that honor God and build good morals. Sometimes there’s an encouraging song that comes at exactly the right time, when we really just need a reminder of how good God is and how blessed we are. And how exactly loving God is.
There is the music that goes pumping through your veins, rocketing your world, and you can’t help but do some head bops and jump up and down enthusiastically. It makes you want to do some moves, some hair-whipping, maybe even play it about seven times over.
There’s also the music that has all the head bopping traits above, but doesn’t preach a good message. Who knows what it could be saying? There are lots of contemporary artists out there that you really should avoid at all costs. The moment I hear mention of any of the worldly, sinful subjects in a song, I instantly skip it. Same with bad words. Do we need that stuff in our heads? No. Should we listen to a song like that just because it has a catchy tune? Nope.
I’m not saying all we should listen to is strictly Christian themed songs. There are plenty of fun, good songs out there that we can listen to, we just need to be careful.
