"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" burned up box offices, pulling in some 161.1 million dollars in just one weekend.
Fans want to see Katniss, with her nearly superhuman survival skills
- outsmart evil President Snow
- get a clue about handsome hearthrobs Gale and Peeta
- destroy the despicable system of "reaping" innocent victims for the entertainment of privileged onlookers.
Katniss (with help from the mockingjay) has become the symbol for hope … because of her willingness to die rather than kill. And apparently her fiery courage is catching.
But as Snow senses his system of fear-based control falling apart, he concocts a diabolical plan to protect his power.
So much drama!
So many special effects!
What a way to escape from reality!
I mean, it’s not like anyone in the real world uses fear to manipulate and control others, right?
And who ever heard of a corrupt system that exploits innocents?
Or a real world where some starve while others who’ve never known hunger are obsessed with entertainment?
Katniss and her friends aren’t real but the ugliness and corruption they face are.
Hunger is also real, and it’s not always about feeding the stomach. Maybe people exploit and oppress each other because they are spiritually starved and don’t even know it.
Well it doesn’t have to be that way.
There once was a reaping of just one person, not in a movie but in real life.
The innocent victim wasn’t picked in a lottery, but predicted by Jewish prophets. And he wasn’t really a victim because he turned his death into a victory …
Yeshua (Jesus) is a real person whose death and resurrection still inspire hope and shake up the status quo today.
Don’t wait for the odds to be in your favor. You can receive God’s favor, based on Jesus’ sacrifice for you.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
