Review of the movie Pilgrim's Progress
I've been thinking lately about the goals I have for my two daughters. We spend time coaching manners and encouraging homework, adding prizes and ultimatums for piano practice and clean rooms. I've coming to see though that none of that matters in the long run. I believe in Jesus. I believe in eternity. I believe in grace. As a results, my primary goal for my kids is that they grow to see faith as their primary purpose.
Have you read the book Little Women? If so, remember how the March sisters grow into women through hardships great and small? At one point their wise mama gives each a copy of the book Pilgrim's Progress and encourages them to play out allegory in their own lives.
"Our burdens are here, our road is before us, and the longing for goodness and happiness is the guide that leads us through many troubles and mistakes to the peace which is a true Celestial City. Now, my little pilgrims, suppose you begin again, not in play, but in earnest, and see how far you can get before Father comes home." Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
I want to be this mama.
I want to find all the tools to give my kids to grow in faith and courage. To that end, I'm excited to share with you a fantastic new rendition of the classic book Pilgrim's Progress.
We previewed the movie a couple of weeks ago and my six year old keeps asking questions about the characters and talking though concepts like redemption, legalism and perseverance. Any movie that encourages my little one to learn about living her life in grace and freedom and gives her tools to understand hardship is a win.
Pilgrim's Progress is a creative, colorful, engaging retelling of John Bunyan's classic book. The story is an allegory which explains spiritual concepts like faith, hope, redemption and perseverance.
The movie is in theaters two days only. April 18th and April 20th on Easter weekend.
