Listened to Song Lyrics Lately?
"Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable . . . think about such things." - Philippians 4:8 niv
Parents, three things:
- First, listen to the music. Sometimes this isn’t easy—the pounding music often doesn’t sound like music at all, but be assured that after constant exposure, the attitude and mood projected are being firmly planted in your child’s brain.
- Pay close attention to the lyrics. What is their message? Put simply, much of today’s popular music tragically devalues women. Girls listening to such songs become programmed to think of themselves as far less than the treasures they are in Christ.
- Beware if your daughter is dating or hanging out with a boy who listens to such music. How do you think he perceives women? How will this training cause him to treat your daughter?
God’s Word teaches us that how we think, so we are.
