Most of you have heard, I’m sure, Angus T. Jones’ recently aired disgust over the show he currently works for: Two and a Half Men.

 

He is quoted saying things like:

“I am on Two and a Half Men, and I don’t want to be.”

“Please stop watching it.  Please stop filling your head with filth.”

I’ve only seen the show a couple times and honestly never saw it all the way through, but I was a Jon Cryer fan (aaaaahhh, Duckie) so I gave it a chance.  The profanity and sexual innuendos were enough to know it wasn’t a show worth my time plus I didn’t like that kid.

Two and a Half Men

The character, Jake, that Angus played was disrespectful, snotty, arrogant and rude and I couldn’t stand watching him.

Several years ago my husband managed an entertainment company here in Madison allowing him close contact with the manager of the same entertainment company in Los Angeles where Angus frequented.  From the stories told about Angus, it confirmed my dislike for the kid.  In real life he treated people the way his character Jake did on the show: he expected everyone to cater to him and him alone.

Granted, I’m sure it didn’t help that this child actor made millions per season and therefore has only known his entire life that he can have whatever he wants.  But still…money shouldn’t have that kind of power over a person.

So when I saw this new found change in Angus, I was skeptical to say the least.  His past actions had satisfactorily proven he was self-centered and proud.

But aren’t we all??

How proud was I before Christ changed me?  Yeeaaahhhh…

I am excited and quite impressed actually, to see that Angus has made such a turn around.  Especially coming from a place of incredible power through fame and money…

“For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”   1 Timothy 6:10

“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”   Mark 10:25

love of money

“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.”   Matthew 6:24

Our family has so often struggled with money, especially since choosing to live for Christ so many years ago.  When Jax and I were first married, we both worked full time jobs, made quite a significant amount of money together and did whatever we pleased.  Although we had both given our hearts to Christ…we acted more like fair weather fans, not true followers (see Kyle Idleman’s book Not a Fan).

I now know why God has not given us excessive amounts of money.  We have proven to be poor stewards of money in the past so when He forced us to rely fully on Him for it, our eyes were opened to what truly is His and allowed us to see Him working clearly in our lives.  Now that is a gift…definitely not fun, but truly a blessing.

 

So the hang up I have with Angus’ recent statements is this; if the show is such “filth” and if he truly “doesn’t want to be on it,” then why is he?

I understand that he signed a contract but I’m guessing he signed it within the last year after his conversion and new found faith.  Even if there is a breech of contract, I’m guessing the $350 thousand he makes per episode and his estimated $15 million net worth (source: Celebrity Net Worth) would probably cover the penalty cost were a breech of contract to take place.

Although should he stay… what a unique witnessing opportunity he has to those on the show as well as those watching!!

I don’t know.  Only time will tell whether Angus truly is a follower of Christ and what his next move is.  I won’t start watching the show but I am now a fan of Angus and pray he continues to make good decisions.  I can only imagine the trials he will be facing in the coming days…

Whenever I am asked that question, my answer is always Little Drummer Boy.

 

 

Even as a kid I loved that song, and it always seemed like I was one of the few who chose it.  I even remember people asking me why I liked it so much, and I never really had an answer.  I guess I liked how the songwriter incorporated the pa-rum-pum-pum-pum throughout the song…but otherwise I just didn’t know.

Today I heard the song again, and today God brought out the words;

“…then He smiled at me.”

 Whoa.

That’s it!  That’s exactly why I like it, and yet that’s exactly what I didn’t understand so many years ago…that relationship.

Jesus doesn’t want gifts, He wants our heart.

The little drummer boy literally gave Jesus all he had.  His heart when he played his drum and Jesus accepted it with a smile.

Oh, to have Jesus smile when I meet him face to face as we all will one day.  To hear him say;  

“Well done, good and faithful servant…”   Matthew 25:21 

 

Man, I wish I had a drum.
