Matthew 10:39 says whoever finds his life will lose it and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

A while back the movie Die Hard was on tv so I watched it with my son. Even though I was very tired and needed to get up early the next morning I stayed up and watched until the very end which was unusual for me. The reason–it’s one of my favorite movies.

Last Christmas I watched my all-time favorite movie with my family–Its a wonderful life. This is a family tradition in my household during Christmas.  While watching this movie I was pondering why I liked this movie so much. I then thought of my other favorites–dieheart, Gladiator, and Braveheart. It then dawned on me that I like all these movies for the same reason. You may be thinking that Die Hard, Gladiator, and Braveheart al seem to go together but its a wonderful life? Really?

At first glance, Frank Capra’s Christmas classic doesn’t seem to belong in this list. But when you look a little deeper, you’ll find it really is just like these other movies.
