Despicable Me

I took my son recently to see the new 3-D feature film Despicable Me.  If you haven't seen it, I would highly recommend it!  It's truly a must-see movie -especially if you have kids!  It's basically about a super villain named Gru who is bent on pulling off the greatest hiest known to mankind....stealing the moon! This all comes about after rival villain Vector gains first-rate-criminal status for stealing the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.  Determined to regain the criminal throne, Gru wont rest until he pulls off the ultimate one-up by stealing the moon!  To make a long story short, he ends up adopting three, cute, little orphan girls to do his dirty work.  As you might expect, they end up stealing his heart and as the old saying goes "you never know what you got until it's gone."  Gru looses the girls and while he's trying to steal the moon, he realizes that the girls are the one thing in life he can't live without.  

Transformation.  That's really what this movie is all about.  It's really an old and familiar tale isn't it.  Cinderella eventually becomes a princess, the Beast becomes a prince, Pinocchio becomes a real boy, and Gru turns from his evil ways and becomes a loving Father -someone the girls can finally look up to.

What is it about human nature that makes stories like these to resonate so deeply within our hearts? Hollywood obviously knows because they continue to make these kinds of movies and billions of dollars in revenue.  I think thier on to something!  Our hearts are gripped by stories of transformation.  Why is that?

The wisest man that ever lived said that "God has set eternity in the hearts of man" Ecc 3:11.  Could it be that there is something in our hearts, something eternal that God himself has placed there that whispers to our spirit "you could be more, you could become something that you never imagined you could be".  Maybe that's why were so enchanted by these stories of transformation? 

My business tag line is "transforming your guitar into a work of art".  I can get excited about that.  I'm having a blast building this business.  I'm pretty passionate about anything and everything guitar!  But how sad would it be if that's what defines my life.  I want my life to have more purpose than that!  I want this business to have more purpose than that!  I want to step into the story that God is telling.   A story full of twists and turns, danger and risk, a story where I (and you too) can become something that you never imagined you could be.  That's something to get excited about!
