Was it just me or were there more commercials that had sexual innuendos in this year’s Super Bowl than ever before? It is getting harder and harder to try to protect my children from the rampant sexual culture we are living in right now, and for some reason there are a lot more of it in sporting events on T.V. Maybe it is just a reflection of where we are as a society.
First, it was the “wardrobe malfunction” by Janet Jackson and now this year, some of the commercials definitely had “suggestive” messages. As my kids were all watching the game with me, I found myself cringing a bit. We have already talked to Josiah about sexual issues. As parents, we wanted to be the first ones to talk about it with him rather than hearing it from other sources. We are still waiting for Elliot and Karissa to get to an age where we can talk about it one-on-one – and that age is getting earlier and earlier every year.
It is my prayer that my kids will engage the culture to bring transformation to it with God’s Kingdom perspective, but we are hoping they can do it with purity in their hearts.
