"Have you found God yet Gump?"-Lt Dan "I didn't know I was supposed to lookin for Him."-Gump
So last night I had a program that I called "Bubba Gumps." I showed Forrest Gump and we ate shrimp in honor of Bubba. This was a diversity program, where we talked about all of the diversity that Gump encountered throughout the film.
I'm not going to write about diversity however. What really touched me was the line that I used as the title. This is just one of the many times where Gump shows his innocence in the film.
In Matthew 18:2-4 it talks about having Faith like a Child (those two links are the song and lyrics by Jars of Clay). Gump portrays this same innocence throughout the film. I really wish that we as followers would do the same thing. I truly believe that if we had this innocence, this faith like a child, that we would be able to change the world. We would see an effective change in the group of believers across the nation, that people would want to follow who we follow.
