Remember Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?
There were 5 Golden Tickets hidden in five random Wonka Bars. If this is not jogging your memory, the book, the movie, and the remake movie are all fairly accessible.
I preferred the book.
Charlie, the poor little boy living on scraps with his parents and extended family, finds a Golden Ticket! He won!
That might be the shortest movie synopsis ever.
Charlie gets invited to Willy Wonka’s candy factory!
It would have been the most exhilarating and memorable occasion in Charlie’s life!
If you were wondering about this blog turning into a modern Siskel & Ebert, no worries. I would not be very good at reviewing and rating movies.
But I can draw connections from the things we know (movies and such) to the things with which we are not as familiar (God and His Word).
This post starts a series called “Better than a Golden Ticket” It will be taken from John 2, in the New Testament.
The chapter starts with a wedding. Jesus, his mother Mary, and the disciples are all present.
And that’s all you get for now.
For now, ponder this: If you were the one sending out golden tickets, who would you invite?
