Now more than ever, men need to keep watch over what’s been entrusted to their care and protection, especially the eternal souls that fall under their headship and households.
Husbands and fathers have a God-given responsibility to guard their families (Gen. 2:15), like a shepherd watching over his sheep (Ex. 22:10), like a watchman over a city (Isa. 62:6). Not only from physical threats that may enter the home through an unlocked window or door, but also from spiritual threats that enter into the hearts and minds through screens and entertainment.
The world has a pulpit in every home with the permission of every husband and father. Every movie, every show, every song, and every game has a worldview that is preached, and every sermon endorses a particular view of God, sin, and humanity.
