The Wizard of Oz is such an endearing classic movie. I haven’t met many people who don’t like it, and fewer still who have never seen it. I’ve heard so many of its great lines repeated by one person or another, like: “I’m off to see the wizard”; “I’ll get you my pretty”; “If I only I had a brain”; “Follow the yellow brick road.”
The movie has all the ingredients of a great story, putting us through a gamut of emotions. How many times in our lives have we felt lost, like Dorothy? We’re in a new or strange situation fraught with fear of the unknown. As long as Dorothy stays on the path that she started, she can’t go wrong. Her journey ends with meeting “The Great Oz” who has all the answers.
There are so many analogies I could draw from this movie and parallel them to the Christian life. One of them is: I’m so thankful that, as believers, we don’t have to wait until the end of our journey to meet the one who can protect, guide and show us a better way. He is forever present to help us in our time of need.
