Sometimes movies can be very thought provoking, deep and driven movies can leave you with a sense of knowing more then you did before. They can invoke change and can invoke hostility. Sometimes they just invoke a release from the troublesome world we live in, a little mind numbing humor. I recently watched Evan Almighty, the movie was good not great but one bit of dialogue really got me thinking so here it is. Morgan Freeman as God: “Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?”, this line really got me thinking. So many people pray for God to fix things but they don’t see that God is giving them the strength and opportunity to create the change. I have been as guilty as anyone of sitting back praying for God to create the change for me while not realizing that the whole time he was creating opportunities for me to make a meaningful life for myself with his help. DON’T LET THOSE CHANCES PASS, FOLLOW THE PATH!
