‘Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo you fool!’ (Gandalf)
There’s some good advice in case you meet a dragon today. I love how in the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit movies it’s hobbits that get to be the heroes of the story. They live in holes in the ground. They’re small. They have to be rescued all the time. Hobbits don’t usually think very much of themselves – which makes them perfect for carrying Rings and other adventures.
I think Jesus would call hobbits ‘poor in spirit’. He’d say ‘you’re blessed!’
Do you feel like you’re nobody really special? You might be just the person Jesus loves to bless – and use for big things.
