I recently saw one of my very few favorite movies in the world, one very dear to my heart and precious from my childhood memories and I thought why the heck haven’t I written about it yet! So here am I, writing about it…
Now not to be that overly serious person you can’t see a movie with because they’re always talking about life lessons even from the silliest scene, actually never mind, I’m that person most times🤦♀️. Forgive me.
But I honestly learn something new everytime I see it. You can read up on one of such lessons here https://dealtar.com/2018/01/12/the-lion-king/ while I share with you the most recent one which was pointed out by a friend I saw it with.
I realized how similar to storyline of The Lion King actually is to my Faith. Okay, okay before you roll your eyes, hear me out. So the little guy, Simba, as an attempt to please his dad goes with his not so kind uncle, Scar to go do some roaring practice. Things get out of hand, dear Mufasa (Simba’s dad) dies and Scar finds a way to guilt trip Simba into running away, abandoning his rightful position as King.
So here it is, me, you, rightful heirs in God’s kingdom, being tempted by our own desires, or doing all we can to ‘be the best’, sometimes we fall and then feel too guilty to go back, we shy away from our rightful position, in essence, we run away. Simba, a whole king, goes around eating slugs with Timo and Pumba, ignoring who he is, neglecting his identity until Nala comes along and Rafiki knocks some sense into his head, showing him how his Father lives in him and rather than being angry, he had been right there with him all along, waiting for him to take his rightful position.
It really does remind me of my relationship with Christ, how he’s never angry at me but on the contrary loves me unconditionally and waited patiently for me to realize and accept what he’s done for me and who I am in him, just as he’s waiting for you if you don’t have a relationship with him yet.
So for you that know of this relationship I’m talking about, never forget how much the Father loves you, for you that don’t know about the relationship with Christ, maybe be a little open about it, ask your questions, see if it’s actually true for yourself.
That will be all for now. Thanks for reading! Seen the movie yet? Comment below and tell me what you thought of it. Haven’t yet? YOU SHOULD!!
