Movie Review: Courageous

I strongly recommend this movie to all men who have children, or hope to some day.  Rent it, stream it, buy it, but find someway to watch it.

The film involves the lives of 5 men (4 of whom are sheriff’s deputies) and their families and how they are driven and spurred by life’s trials to resolve to become better men.  The movie is dramatic, with some interspersed comedic relief (the Snake Kings scene had my sides splitting), much like life.  I don’t want to spoil some of the more moving parts, but it suffices to say that we can easily get caught up in the day to day of living and being a parent.

I don’t know how you can be a Christian husband/father and not be moved by this movie and spurred to action.  What action?

Watch this movie and resolve to be the husband, father and man God calls you to be.  Perhaps you can get a group of men together for fellowship, to study God’s word and to hold each other accountable to this resolution (or to one of your own creation).  Resolve today not to be just a “pretty good” father.

P.S.:  A special thanks to the folks at Sherwood Baptist Church in Georgia who created this film and others, including a great flick starring Kirk Cameron called Fireproof  (my review of that film will be forthcoming).
