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:
- Some of us think we are the main actor in our story. Jesus is the main character; I am an “extra.”
- God has a plan to redeem every painful thing you’ve gone through.
- If we can remember what we were like before Christ, we’d have compassion for where people are without Jesus.
- Jesus came to redeem culture, not to reject it.
Love you all. Have a great week.
BTW: Here’s a great song for the week…
