If You’re Looking for Some Good Entertainment

Sit down and watch a presidential debate with teenagers. Yes, really.

This happened here at the house last night. For a brief, yet refreshing, period of time the heaviness of the issues in our country and the ugliness of the election were replaced by a fairly enjoyable series of witty comments and unfiltered reactions.

The kids’ laughs and their takes on what was an otherwise brutal nonstop attacking of character by both men made this nearly unwatchable event not only watchable but, yes, actually entertaining.

Now, hopefully they really will see past the petty arguing on the screen and continue to educate themselves on the issues. Politics can be a pretty ugly thing, but democracy is still so important. It was nice to see them take an interest in the latter, while taking the former for what it is and choosing to not get dragged down by it.

The Debate

I read this today and thought I’d share it.

1 Peter 3
13Can anyone really harm you for being eager to do good deeds? 14Even if you have to suffer for doing good things, God will bless you. So stop being afraid and don’t worry about what people might do.

The way I interpret this is…it’s great advice for those moments when you have a virtual debate of sorts between doing something or living a certain way to please God and doing something or living a certain way to please others. It’s a debate I’d assume everyone has throughout their lives, whether consciously or subconsciously. I know I do.

It’s just nice to know that when that debate happens, something like this is here to show us which way to go.

Have a great day.
