Therefore, we should take care to guard our eyes, as Jesus informs us, when it comes to engaging with media that fosters resentment, fear, lust, violence, cynicism, anxiety, escapist tendencies, depression, laziness, and other vices.

- What are your go-to shows or online outlets and are they bringing you closer to or further from God? Do you need to change your consumption habits and, if so, how might you do so starting today?
- What are some ways you can unwind at the end of the day that are more pleasing to God and keep you in “light” rather than venturing toward darkness?
