An Ounce of Prevention: (MOVIE) A Reminder That Worldly Men...Ain't a Good Look
So I'm pretty sure that most of the women who check out this blog aren't Amish and you may not have a ton of time to check out a fictional 1 1/2 hour movie about Amish people. Yet I happened to check it over the weekend. And in the midst of so many movies that are...let's say visually and verbally assaulting, it's nice to see a nice and sweet love story. Plus, there is a great point that is brought up in the midst of it all that applies to anyone who loves and strives to serve God---and being in a godly relationship.
I John 2:16 tells us that the world is full of *nothing but* lust and pride. And so, if you look to be in a relationship with a man who is "of the world" as opposed to one who has a relationship with God, Christ and the Holy Spirit, there's a great chance that he's going to be the combination of lust and pride: *extremely selfish*.
Anyway, if you have some down time, there are some pretty nice "ah ha moments" in it. Sometimes, we're so busy thinking there's stuff out here that's more interesting, more desirable and more satisfying than what's aligned within God's boundaries. And you know what? *There never ever is*:
"But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions). Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death."---James 1:14-15(NKJV)
"But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed].
Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny]."---I Corinthians 2:9-10(AMP)
There's even a character in the film that speaks on this...
Anyway, if you want to see a nice wholesome movie with a great morale to the story, here ya go:
