It's A Wonderful Life

Given December 21, 2006
My lovely wife gave me this revelation as we were going shopping on this day. We've all seen the movie "It's A Wonderful Life" and Mrs. D brought up a really good point from it.

Remember at the beginning of the movie you see a view from the Heavens and you hear people's voices praying for George Bailey.
Mr. Gower says, "I owe everything to George Bailey. Help him, dear Father."
Mrs. Bailey says, "Help my son George tonight."
Bert the cop says, "He never thinks about himself, God; that's why he's in trouble."
Wife Mary says, "I love him, dear Lord. Watch over him tonight."
This sounds like intercession to me, what do you think?

These people are asking God to help George Bailey so what does God do? Yes, He sends a goofy angel named Clarence Odbody to help George but who really helps him? It's his family and friends! God uses people to help old George.

In the end, all these people come to George's house bringing money to help George in his time of need. "
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:38". George was a giver and people gave into his bosom, (really it was a basket).

I liked one of the lines from the gathering in the Bailey living room spoken by George's brother Harry, "A toast...to my big brother George. The richest man in town!" George thought he was ruined financially and that everyone would be better off if he were dead. But Clarence helped him see the lives he had touched and because of that, he was rich. Clarence's note to George in the end said, "No man is a failure who has friends."

During this Christmas season and beyond, think of those who have given to you, pray for them and help them out if they need it. And, be a giver yourself. "...remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35".
