Here’s fine short film, the grand prize winner of director/producer Ridley Scott’s “Tell It Your Way” global film making competition. The entries were unlimited on subject matter, but had to follow two rules:
The film could not exceed three minutes.
The script must have six lines.
How remarkable, that so much can be communicated with so little. And what a wonderful reminder of the value of simplicity.
Reflecting on the power of this little film, we are reminded of a few other examples of vast truths expressed within precious few words:
“God is love.” (1 John 4:16)
“Jesus wept.” (John 11:35)
“I do believe; help my unbelief.” (Mark 9:24)
“Faith without deeds is dead.” (James 2:26)
“There is no fear in love.” (1 John 4:16)
The human race insists on complicating life. Perhaps it would do every Christian good to pause from time to time and consider the simplest of truths within our Bibles. In the end, they are what matters most:
“He has risen!” (Luke 24:6)
