Pitch Perfect

In Pitch Perfect we see Becca trying to find her way through college, she wants to become a music producer instead of studying. She is so sure of her purpose and is ready to do anything to get there, even dishonour her father.

Do you know what your purpose is?

When we come into relationship with Jesus, He gives us a purpose, even when we doubt, He tells us to go and make disciples of all people. Read Matthew 28:16-20 (http://bit.ly/2ElRFim) and pray that God affirms His purpose for you today, a purpose which brings others into the greatest relationship they could ever have.

Hitch

The movie Hitch which stars Will Smith is all about two peoples’ compatibility in a relationship. He helps people to change so that they might be noticed, liked or even loved by their crush. Naturally the movie ends with people falling in love when they are just being their natural selves.

You do not need to change to be noticed, liked or loved by God, instead the opposite. He made you in His image, He sees you, knows you and loves you just as you are. We change because of our relationship with Jesus, not to enter a relationship with him.

Remember this as you read Ps 139 (http://bit.ly/2EfiANJ)

In the first Ant-man movie, Scott Lang finds this shrinking suit and learns how to use it, getting into trouble along the way. In the second movie, he has a side-kick: Wasp. Two are better than one: they make a great team. We often see pairings in superhero movies: Batman and Robin, Clark Kent and Louis Lane, Captain America and The Falcon. A hero never saves the day on his own. Their friends and sidekicks make them stronger and keep them on the right path.

Doesn’t this remind you of Proverbs 27:17 (http://bit.ly/2GrREj6)?
The right friends are important to your story.

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait for the new Lion King movie. It’s a real classic. There’s music, dancing, comedy, drama and romance. It’s got everything!

I especially love Mufasa and Simba’s relationship. When Simba disobeys Mufasa and goes to the elephant graveyard, Mufasa explains that being brave doesn’t mean doing dangerous things. He then forgives Simba, despite his anger, and tells him how he loves him unconditionally.

Isn’t this a beautiful picture of God’s love for us?
He sent His Son to die for us, even while we were sinners, because He loves us.
(Roamans 5:8 – http://bit.ly/2GrQO61)
