On Wednesday, Korie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame took to Instagram to share a lengthy message on the value of what type of media we consume.
Robertson is a firm believer that “what goes in, must come out.” However, she says that even though we know this to be true, we often don’t live that truth by making healthy choices for ourselves.
“Through the music we listen to, the apps we open, entertainment we watch, people we hang out with…we put in negativity, hate, gossip, slander, faulty ideas, mixed up messages about success, sex, body image… and we expect to get a different outcome in our own lives,” Robertson posted.
The Duck Dynasty star referenced a Nielsen study that highlighted adults’ average media intake in a day. The study showed that adults spend 11 hours a day consuming some form of media. That includes time spent watching TV, on your phone, on a computer, watching movies, listening to music, and more. Robertson goes on to share a bible verse to further her point.
“There’s a verse in Phil 4:8 that says ‘Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things,'” Robertson wrote. “If we don’t intentionally ‘think of such things’ then we won’t get the life we really want. We’ll get some other life output based on all those hours putting other things into our heart and mind.”
Robertson Helped Create a Devotional App
The TV star is now doing something about the media problem. She is a founding partner of a new phone application called Glorify.
The application’s official Instagram page shares a short description in their Bio. It says “Grow closer to God through Glorify: the daily worship app with curated Bible passages, music playlists, devotionals, guided meditation and prayer.”
Robertson also shared her excitement for the new app in her Instagram post, saying that it’s free for everyone.
“I’ve been so excited to tell you about something I’ve been doing, and am a founding partner in. It’s an app called @glorifyappofficial. It’s a devotion and meditation app full of God’s word,” Robertson explains.
Furthermore, she says, “What is actually true, lovely, excellent and praiseworthy! There are devotions, affirmations, meditations, prayer, and music for adults and now kids! I’ve put the link in my bio. It’s totally free, go download it now, and see the difference it makes. What goes in, must come out!”
