Watch the News before Sleeping, Dream of Violence
Sleep is the time when our minds sort through the memories of the day. What you mentally take in immediately before bedtime can affect how you sleep.
How you gone to bed angry? The apostle Paul says, “don’t let the sun go down on your anger, lest you give the devil a foothold.” There is a mystical element of anger that allows evil to take root in our sleep.
So it is with the nightly news. Take in the latest evils of society and they can take root while you sleep. The violence shown in bedtime newscasts will stay with you. It will infect your dreams and ability to have quality sleep. Proverbs 3:24 says that your sleep can be “sweet.” This takes some action on your part too!
Guard what you watch before sleep. Go to bed with a peaceful mind and enjoy your dreams.
