Capsule for the Day
"Same Kind of Different as Me" is a powerful movie, packed with heart moving and life changing messages. One message that has stayed with me is "God is in the business of recycling our trash into treasures". It is a movie that answers the question "is there anything too hard for the Lord".
Denver, Ron and Ron's father had problems. Denver had a deep seated anger problem. He served a prison term. He was a homeless man. His biological parents weren't there for him. He was trash. But God found him. He recycled Denver's trash into treasure. He made Denver temperate.
The world is full of many Denvers. People struggling with one addiction or another. People notorious to be trash. People who have lost confidence in themselves. Sometimes, I also feel like trash. But I find hope in the quote "God is recycling my trash, your trash, our trash into treasures".
