The Metamorphosis of Bilbo

Remember in the most recent movie “The Hobbit” (if you happened to have seen it) how Gandalf admonished and even teased Bilbo about his inordinate concern for the use and condition of his grandmother’s doilies and elegant china? Bilbo had an unexpected flood of visitors whom he was trying graciously to accommodate but in the process it became evident to Gandalf how Bilbo’s priorities and vhad shifted. Since he had refrained for a long time from venturing forth into the challenges he had been created to meet, he had begun to settle for a preoccupation with lesser things typified by doilies. Absent those challenges in our lives the vacuum will soon subtly be filled one by one and piece by piece with relative trivialities. Gandalf functioned like the prophet in Bilbo’s life reminding him whence he, ever so imperceptibly to himself, had slipped degree by degree over the months and years.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
