If you are a parent with teen-aged children, an aunt or uncle with teen-aged nieces and nephews, a movie producer with teen-aged actors and actresses, a junior high school vice principal with teen-aged students, an emperor with teen-aged subjects, a soda jerk with teen-aged slackers, a yurt twiner with teen-aged campers, or an insurance salesperson with teen-aged neighbors and they have a computer they probably have played a computer game. Command & Conquer is just such a game a teen-aged yute might play for hours on end. It is full shootin’ and fightin’ and runnin’ and manly language and hiding behind trees, the very things teen-agers, given their druthers, would be doing. When The Lad was teen yeared he played this game. And a whole bunch of similar games. The TPLs kept the gaming industry up and bouncing along for at least a half decade. We’ve done our time and are done tithing to them. You may have this game. You know what to do. Thank you and goodnight.

Philippians 4:8-9  (The Message)

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
