Today we were SO BLESSED to go to the special screening of FIREPROOF. I'm no movie critic but I'll give it a try.
First of all, the Georgia Baptist Center is gorgeous! It was worth going to see the facilities.
The movie was awesome. Kirk Cameron plays the lead role. We all had our fairy tale dreams of what marriage would be like. When that fades, we must be ready to face the fire! It was full of lessons such as:
1) Be careful who you choose as friends.
2) With God, all things are possible.
3) We need to focus on ourselves first and not the other persons faults.
4) What are the parasites in your life that are sucking the life out of your marriage?
5) God loves us and SEEKS US! All we have to do is accept it.
Some really good lines:
"Fireproof does not mean there will be no fire but you will be able to withstand it when the fire comes."
"Women are like a rose. Take care of them and they will bloom, ignore them and they will wilt."
Another thing that meant a lot to me personally was the support that this movie gives to firemen. David sees things on almost every shift that he has to push aside when he walks into the door. I do not know how he does it. It made me appreciate him, and all that he does in his profession, so much more. See the black t-shirt David is wearing? It says: "I love my marriage" on the front and has an advertisement for FIREPROOF on the back. He got that free for being a fireman and present at today's sreening.
Opening weekend is Septmeber 26th. Please go to support this movie and to show Hollywood that movies like this are wanted! Help spead the word in your church too. You can go to fireproofthemovie.com for all kinds of resources.
