"Double Blessing challenges us to reframe our perception of blessing, seeing God's gifts as opportunities for increased generosity." —Pastor Louie Giglio

There are many things that clamor for our obedience and obeisance. For fifty years people have become the servant of the television, the ‘boob’ tube, haven’t they? I’m thankful that we were too poor to afford anything but one of those little 12 inch black and white screened General Electric televisions when I was small. And mother never let us watch too much of it, either.

But subsequent generations have been raised on it. It’s become the most convenient babysitter in a household; just turn it on to some kiddie show or cartoon and they’re enraptured for hours. Enslaved.

Others are enslaved to addicting things like drugs, alcohol, money, or power. They bow down to that idol and do whatever they need to do in order to satisfy it.
