I happened to catch a bit of the Simpsons this evening, although it started off with Lisa getting a pet Guinea pig, things move towards the purchase of a painting at a garage sale. Homer gives in to Marg’s inclination regarding a painting as three small violins are thrown in to clinch the sale.
Soon after there is a scene with Homer humming along to a famous classical music piece while throwing the violins into the fire for fuel, which was when I got the call that dinner was ready.
Earlier this morning I read an article on the Game of Thrones written by John Piper, I have not seen an episode but it seems pretty topical at the moment. http://www.desiringgod.org/blog/posts/12-questions-to-ask-before-you-watch-game-of-thrones. Piper presents some biblical insight into our modern culture, peeling back the layers & getting to the heart of the matter, it really is a battle.
