Courageous the movie


The Movie “Courageous
Courageous is a wonderful, heartwarming movie about men taking ownership of their responsibilities. It is a movie of God’s grace and patience. God‘s love and goal for fathers or even men in general. The movie is about taking responsibility and being obedient to God’s call on men. Women would love the show as well.
As I listened to Adams talk to the congregation, Scripture came to my mind that affirmed to me the value of what he was speaking of.
The speech he made was of men taking ownership of the spiritual head of house. Adams talked about some men hearing the message of ownership but scoffing at it, while others may hear and listen but not do anything. Then there were the ones who listened, started to do what was right then stopped, gave up when the road got more difficult. Then there were the ones who listened,  took in the information, took a hold of the ownership, then not only did something about  taking the ownership but, also making the necessary changes and facing the challenges and sharing what they have learnt with their children and spouses.
As I listened to the story. Matthew 13 came to mind the sower of the seeds
That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.” 10 The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” 11 He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.
13 This is why I speak to them in parables:   “Though seeing, they do not see;  though hearing, they do not hear or understand.  14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:
“‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding;  you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. 15 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes,  hear with their ears,   understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’  16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17 For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.  18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 22 The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. 23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
For the women, this movie is a look into how we can support our men. How spiritually we are called to support our families and the men as head of the Spiritual life within the family structure.
Proverbs 31:12. She brings him good, not harm,  all the days of her life.
