Where do you want to sow your wild oats?

“Forget that I sowed wild oats; Mark me with your sign of love. Plan only the best for me, God! God is fair and just; he corrects the misdirected, sends them in the right direction.” Psalm 25:7-8image

Reality TV: A crazy way for producers to use ordinary people to make money without developing a script. But how much of it is “reality,” such as in the survivor category? A new series features a man and a woman in the jungle wearing only a small pouch around the waist, each carrying one survival item–like a knife or small pan to boil water. Really, how could they survive without a crew around them filming every move they make and coming to their rescue when injured?

Reality TV contestants say they agreed to do the show to get them out of a financial situation. Some want adventure and actually go on to have a career in the entertainment world. Unfortunately, a few “stars” fall from grace, disappoint their followers, disgrace themselves and their families, and become a shooting star never to be seen again. Perhaps I missed the boat when I didn’t begin a reality TV show from my church office. Christians being human, wearing either thorns or halos, could have been a big hit.

Whether we sow wild oats in front of a camera or behind closed doors, God treats us more fairly than an audience of people waiting to witness someone screw up

Thank you, Lord, for being the producer of my life. Amen.
