Free Refills

March 21, 2019

“Free refills on the popcorn, right?”

One of my favorite things about going to a movie theater is the popcorn.

Oh sure, I love films, and have rarely missed The Roger Ebert Film Festival since my then 90+ year old mom turned me on to it. (Great story there; ask me about that sometime.)

I think I inherited my love of movie theater popcorn from my mom and dad both.

They’d send second-grade me to the movie theater on a Saturday afternoon with enough cash for a ticket and a popcorn and a soda. My friend John and I walked there together, full of excitement coming from our money and our new freedoms and the movies.

And the popcorn.

At home, Patty and I have Refillable Theater Popcorn Buckets. The printing on the side says they’re outdated by now, and can no longer be refilled at the theater for free. Or even for a small fee of like 25 or 50 cents.

But you and I are still very much refillable.

How? Be transformed by the renewal of your mind. (Romans 12:2)

Then then question becomes, with what are we refilling ourselves?

A good place to start: Whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8)

Let’s practice that today, and I’m looking forward to seeing you back here tomorrow.
