I loved the heroine Katniss and how she faced up to the horrible, gruesome fight she was forced into. I loved how she overcame it all without giving up her unique identity, using her skill and just the right weapons to overcome everything that was stacked against her. Like Katniss we’re in the arena – called to live for Jesus in world that doesn’t know him.
That’s hard! But like Katniss we have just the right weapons: faith, peace, salvation, the Bible, prayer so that we too can stand firm. Life is hard and ugly sometimes, but there’s hope and the promise of rest for those who overcome.
