Have you caught up with the movie Evan Almighty (2007) yet?
If not, do yourself a favour. This is such a great movie for the family. It has funny bits, sad bits, poignant bits. It has messages about faith, the environment, and family.
My boys love this movie. It is heartwarming and humourous.
I love that one of the actors, who is not one of the stars, gets the best lines – Rita the Personal Assistant. Oh, and God is African American.
Here are some of my favourite lines from the movie (I think that having them here won’t spoil the movie)…
God: Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?
