It amazes me that God chooses to work through people (even those who don't acknowledge Him [Isaiah 45, especially v.4]). I saw this theme show up again and again in your blog posts this week. For example, check out this list of potential leaders that includes incredibly unsavory characters. And, again, with a nice encouraging reminder that you can homeschool. But the last post I read this week was a long and detailed review of the movie Courageous.
I haven't seen the movie. But based on my reaction to the one film by this group that I have seen, I'm guessing the comments are spot on. Plus, I've chatted with a few others who have seen the movie and had similar reactions.
But there's another side to this: God uses these movies to positively impact people.
As a filmmaker, that blows me away. Almost everything about these flicks is terrible. And yet God can use even them to change lives for the better.
What do I take from that?
A humbling reminder that God uses me as well.
God can (and does) use you too. Have you seen surprising examples of that lately?
