Last week, I watched Me Before You. It was interesting. The acting and filming were well done and drew me into the movie. Afterwards, I looked up the sequel to the book that was turned into this movie and read a review with spoilers.
Sometimes I watch movies to help me understand what our culture believes about right and wrong, what our culture values. Me Before You is one of those movies.
God cares about life. He cares about our lives.
Psalm 139:13 ESV
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
Exodus 20:13 ESV
You shall not murder.
Me Before You is a movie ultimately about euthanasia and God is absent.
Well, not really. God is always there--even when people think He isn't. But, the characters in this movie never mention God. One character only says that life isn't what he wants and he enjoyed his life before, so it isn't worth living.
I think most people could say at some point, or even all the way along that life isn't what they/we wanted. But, I believe and trust that it is what God knows is best for us. Sometimes that's hard. Really hard. And sometimes it really isn't what I want. But, in the end, it is comforting that God is in control and not me.
Romans 8:28 is one of the most comforting verses to me.
