Hero

I also believe that we are far to easily pleased with our own lives. We seem to bubble ourselves into what we want and it feels so content and right in our minds. We sometimes stray from the vocation He has called for us for our selfish needs and wants. I really don't want to live a "status quo" life, but to live a life of the weight of glory that God has lead for me and us.

Great message from C.S. Lewis and would you agree that there are some of this message in the movie, "The Book of Eli."
