Today I, ____________________, will carefully choose the music I listen to.
“Do not listen to music that encourages immorality or glorifies violence through its lyrics, beat, or intensity… Such music can dull your spiritual sensitivity.” – For the Strength of Youth
Today and until August 2, I, ____________________, will not listen to music that encourages immorality or glorifies violence through its lyrics, beat, or intensity.
“Be selective in what you listen to and produce. It becomes part of you. It controls your thoughts and influences the lives of others as well. I would recommend that you go through your music and throw away that which promotes degrading thoughts. Such music ought not to belong to young people concerned with spiritual development.
“I don’t mean by this that all of today’s music produces unworthy thoughts. There is music today that builds understanding of people; music that inspires courage; music that awakens feelings of spirituality, reverence, happiness, and awareness of beauty.” – Worthy Music, Worthy Thoughts by Boyd K. Packer, emphasis added
