Be...

Today, is a day when I do something here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). 

Yes, I realize that every day I write and post a blog entry, just like I'm doing today.

But, I'll be doing something I have done often in the past.

I'll let you know some movies I've watched!  Here are some:

Little Nikita, starring Sidney Poitier, River Phoenix and other actors.  Want to check out this American cult drama film?  If so, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Nikita.  To me, this was an interesting movie, even though there was a lot of sin in it.

Thelma & Louise, starring Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis & Harvey Keitel.  To check out this American road film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thelma_%26_Louise.  It was interesting seeing where they travelled, but I wasn't truly happy watching this movie.

A Man Called Peter, starring Richard Todd and Jean Peters.  Check out this American drama film, by clicking on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Man_Called_Peter.  Even though I enjoyed seeing a pastor preaching on this movie, it was stressful... especially when he died.

Harry & Son, starring Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward and other actors.  Click on this link, to check out this American drama filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_%26_Son.  This movie touched my heart, with all that happened.

Lucky Luciano, starring Gian Maria Volonte.  If you'd like to check out this American crime drama film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_Luciano_(film).  To be honest, I didn't care for this movie, even though I watched it.

Hmmm... did you notice that each of these films' titles quoted people's names? 

I did.  This is partly why I decided to share them with you, today.

All these movies were very drama-filled, even though they weren't all called drama films.  There was so much trouble and heartbreak.

Thinking of this, made me think of Ephesians 4:31-32, "Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."

We need to let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamour and evil speaking be put away from us, with all malice. 

The stories all seemed to relate in some ways to verse 31 quoted today, for the Bible verse actually shows what was happening in most of the movies' stories.

However, we truly need to do what we read in verse 32:  Be kind to everyone, tenderhearted, forgiving, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Are people like this in films?  Rarely.

But then, many people in these movies need to do what verse 32 tells us.

Do you think unbelievers of Jesus Christ will do that? 

No.  They won't.

How will this happen?

Only those who trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ will gain salvation, and become different than before joining His family.

So, my friend, plant those seeds for Christ. 

This way, you'll do what God wants us to do. 

And, you'll be blessed.


Until next time...
