October Baby

Colossians 3:12-13 tells us that as we have been chosen of God and that we are to have a heart of compassion, kindness, gentleness, and patience. We are to forgive each other, just as the Lord forgave us.

I found October Baby to be a stunning film that exemplifies that scripture from Colossians. This film shows how precious life is, whether it's the life we experience as an adult, or the life that exists after conception. When we choose not to forgive someone, it becomes a burden. When we carry around that burden of unforgiveness, it just bogs us down. Ephesians 4:31 tell us not to let the root of bitterness grow in us.

I don't want to give any plot lines away from this movie. However, don't let that deter you. This is a very powerful movie. One of the best Christian films I've seen. Be sure to watch the ending credits of the movie. One actress tells her real life story and how this fictional movie paralleled her own real life. She also describes the healing that this film helped provide. This bonus in the ending credits is not to be missed.
