Day 14 - Focus on what's important.

December 1 thru December 25 I am posting about movies which reflect each day's focus for #LightTheWorld.

Day 14

"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." (Matthew 6:21)

What we treasure or value the most--fashion, fitness, appearance, money, family, friendship, God--indicates where our heart is. It's what we love. 

There are numerous movies about characters re-aligning their priorities, but since it's the Christmas season, I selected Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol for today's focus. Ebenezer Scrooge, allows greed to takes over his life. Wealth is his treasure. After three ghosts visit him on Christmas Eve--Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come--his heart changes. He feels compassion again and his focus turns outward to others.

Some movie versions of A Christmas Carol...

Today I am focusing on what's important... uninterrupted Devotional time (prayer, scripture study, journal writing) and time with my family.


  1. Muppet Christmas Carol is my favorite version, too! I insist on watching it every Christmas season even though no one else in my family loves it as much as I do. haha

    1. Maybe we can watch it together next Christmas!
