“Some men draw a circle around their family, and they are the only ones they look out for, other men draw a larger circle, to include their friends and people in their area. There are a few men however, whose circle is much larger, it is the world.”
Paraphrase from a scene in the movie 10,000 BC
I was walking through Walmart Tuesday night, caught a scene from a new release 10,000 BC. It hooked me. I mentioned it in passing as my wife and I headed for the checkout. (Just making conversation mind you) This is one of the things I love about her. she said spontaneously, “Then why don’t we get it?”
We are not big movie goers, in fact, if we sit in front of the TV more than twice a month, that would be stretching it… for us to pick up a new release is not the norm. So we set aside Friday night to check it out. I won’t spoil the story for you, but if you like intense action sequence, some violence, no sleaze, and great special effects, you’ll probably like the movie.)
At one point, a young man wrestles with his destiny. A friend of his father waxes philosophical about the “size of each man’s circle”, (the people he looks out for). Ultimately each of us has to decide on how big to draw that circle.
WOW That is a profound thought I told my wife.
There are people who profess to be your friend, but let something happen involving money, a misunderstanding or a wrong committed and you’ll discover just how deep that relationship really is .
I am thankful for the people who have drawn a circle that includes me.
Anyway, tell me about someone who has included you in their “circle” …the more details the better.
