This past week, Mike Floyd shared some timeless and biblical truths from the pulpit. He pulled some clips from a classic movie to demonstrate these truths to help us remember and apply these life lessons. So, enjoy these ponderings as you think about George Bailey’s life …
⁃ If you’re going to help someone, then you need to get to know them … Mark 2.13-17
⁃ Our plans don’t always match God’s plans …. Proverbs 27.1, James 4.13-17
⁃ Putting others before ourselves leads to a more fulfilling life and is honoring to the Lord … Phil 2.3-4, Rom 12.10, 1 John 4.7-8, Matt 6.33
⁃ Having faith and a community matters … Matt 21.22, Hebrews 11.6, Luke 1.37, Proverbs 3.5-6 —— Gal 6.2, 1 Cir 12.25-27, Rom 12.9-21
⁃ God’s greatest gift is life … Genesis 1.27, Matt 16.25, John 10.10
If you’ve seen this classic, these points may make you think of various scenes from the work. If not, I encourage you to watch and enjoy.
Think about some movies you like. What life lessons are there from them? Seeing everything from a Biblical world is exciting as we apply eternal truths to art, entertainment, relationships, work, everything. May 2019 challenge us to how we see the world around us.
Happy New Year
