A screenwriter can spend months, or even years, perfecting a script. However, sometimes, the most iconic lines uttered on the silver screen aren’t the result of a writer at the top of his or her game, but rather an actor offering up some creative ad-libbing. Some of the most iconic moments in movie history were “off script.”
“Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good.” – Avengers Infinity War
“Here’s Johnny” – The Shining
“Here’s looking at you, kid” – Casablanca
The Joker’s slow clap – The Dark Knight
“I’m king of the world.” – Titanic
“You’re gonna need a bigger boat” Jaws
“Off script” seems to be a very apt way to describe what often happens to all of us. Something transpires in our lives that strays away from our intended plan(s). But that’s most of real life happens. It’s “off script”; completely unexpected and unplanned. This June, join us as we head into a story that is everything but “expected” by the people involved. The book of Ruth is canvas to view a beautiful picture of God’s love engaging in our “off scripted” lives.
Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:
- Christ-like love knows no limits, takes costly risks, and looks for ways to give more.
- God‘s kindness moves us from emptiness to abundance.
- Compassion reorients our soul. It shifts our heart from focusing in to focusing out.
Too often the New Testament Church treats the presence of God with an Old Testament mentality.
God’s presence doesn’t stay in a building, it goes with us.
Love you all. Have a great week.
BTW: Here’s a great song for the week…
