The film we saw last week on a beautiful night in Queen’s Park was a surprise in more ways than one. We expected ‘How I Ended This Summer’ could have been a happy holiday move and it was not. ‘Summer’ tricked us too: we weren’t expecting that it would be set in an isolated weather station in the frozen wastes of the Russian arctic! Never mind. We did catch a glimpse of a polar bear and it did get me thinking.
Early in the film the main character deliberately chooses not to do what he knows is right and what he knows he should. From then on he descends on a path where every decision compounds an ever worsening situation until his course of action is irretrievable! Of course his irretrievable damage is not to himself alone.
All of us come to crossroads in our lives and the choices we make always have consequences—some may be irretrievable, and even eternal. Cultivating healthy, Godly thinking points us in the right direction for those ‘crossroad’ moments in life; so let our choices be directed to ‘whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things’. (Philippians 4:8).
And on an eternal positive note, remember, ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’ (Romans 10:13). No if’s and no buts!
Love and blessings,
