Courageous 2011 (Movie)

Many a times, I'm a little skeptical over Christian movies. It brings out certain cheesiness at some plot in the movie. However, this movie that was recommended by my Aunt from Singapore said that this is really good and I gave it a try with my family. Believe you me, I've teared almost throughout 2nd half of the movie. Call me a sissy but this movie shows how resolution breaks a man's pride and surrender our whole to God the almighty.

With this resolution based on the movie, I do encourage everyone to read it once and take it really seriously whether we (and our household) are ready to serve the Lord.

I DO solemnly resolve before God to take full responsibility for myself, my wife, and my children.
I WILL love them, protect them, serve them, and teach them the Word of God as the spiritual leader of my home.
I WILL be faithful to my wife, to love and honor her, and be willing to lay down my life for her as Jesus Christ did for me.
I WILL bless my children and teach them to love God with all of their hearts, all of their minds, and all of their strength.
I WILL train them to honor authority and live responsibly.
I WILL confront evil, pursue justice, and love mercy.
I WILL pray for others and treat them with kindness, respect, and compassion.
I WILL work diligently to provide for the needs of my family.
I WILL forgive those who have wronged me and reconcile with those I have wronged.
I WILL learn from my mistakes, repent of my sins, and walk with integrity as a man answerable to God.
I WILL seek to honor God, be faithful to His church, obey His Word, and do His will.
I WILL courageously work with the strength God provides to fulfill this resolution for the rest of my life and for His glory.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. ---Joshua 24:15
