Would you watch a movie about a guy who wanted a luxury car and worked years to get it? Would you cry at the end when he drove it off the lot? Would you tell all your friends to go see the movie, because it changed your life?
I'm guessing that your answers are No, No, and No.
So why do we spend years actually living out such stories and expect our lives to feel meaningful? Would people pay to see a movie about your life? Would you even want to see it yourself?
We'll talk about this on Sunday, October 31 at Light of Christ (9:30 and 11 AM). In the meantime check out Donald Miller's book about life as story, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. What's your story?
