Chasing Dreams

In The Pursuit of Happyness (directed by Gabriele Muccino [Columbia Pictures, 2006]), Chris Gardner realizes he has inadvertently crushed his son’s dreams. In a passionate lesson, he tells his son to pursue his dreams confidently, even if other people try to distract him: Unlike the child in this scene, Christians don’t chase our own dreams with our own power. Instead, we pursue God’s plans with God’s power through Jesus Christ. We should not let anyone or anything discourage us from pursuing God’s plan for the world.
