“It’s a Wonderful Life” is a Christmas classic, but there’s a theme carried through the movie that is rarely discussed—the role of duty.
If you lived a life without responsibilities, you would be living a life without relationships.
In “It’s a Wonderful Life,” George Bailey’s life is driven by duty, but it’s transformed by the love he finds in his relationships with others.
Hopefully, our life is driven by a sense of duty towards God, but we need to remember that our lives are transformed by the love of God.
This Christmas, embrace the role of duty in your life: it shows that your life has meaning, and that God, who has not forgotten you, will transform your life.
