Hey guys, I promised that there will be a new post on the blog every Sunday, and I’m trying my best to keep my promise to you guys.
So I just saw Tyler Perry’s new movie, A fall from Grace; A dark twisted thriller, currently trending on Netflix, most talked about movie on on Twitter since last week. My sister and I haven’t recovered from the shock of the way the movie ended😂. I literally couldn’t stop screaming. I was going to post something else today but sorry this had to come first. I’m not here to drop spoilers, however, I’ll be sharing three lessons I drew from this incredible movie. If you haven’t seen it yet, please do.
Lessons learned :
1. Discernment is so important : When the Holy Spirit keeps bringing certain things to your attention, you just never know, please listen to those little promptings. When He’s telling you this person isn’t good for you, listen! Stop ignoring those red flags. Discernment is too important in navigating new friendships and relationships. Please I’m not preaching paranoia by the way, just be discerning.
2. Do your homework: No matter how trusting a person seems, do your homework on them, a little googling here and there, aka stalking 🙄, kidding but not really. Asking the right questions too is so important in navigating new friendships and relationships. Don’t get carried away by feelings, your feelings can never be good leaders, put them aside and use your brain too. Never let conversations be one sided, get to really know people.
3. Don’t let anyone look down on you because you’re young or belittle your days of little beginnings, it’s okay to start as a novice, just have a little faith in yourself, you never know what you’re capable achieving until you try. Don’t give up too easily.
There are others lessons I want to talk about but I’ll give too much away, especially for people who haven’t seen it yet, so I’ll just stop here ☺️
I couldn’t help but imagine how many vulnerable women have fallen for cheap scams that changed their lives forever, or worse took them to their early graves. It’s scary that these things happen everyday and I know a lot of people aren’t happy with Tyler Perry’s narrative, however he has found his voice and it seems to be stirring up conversations and these conversations need to happen.
I should also mention that I appreciate how Jasmine’s husband was portrayed, I feel both of them have some work to do in handling their conflict, but there was a balance to things I guess. I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll end this post by saying that ‘A fall from Grace’ is an amazing movie and everyone should see it.
If you have seen “A Fall From Grace” what were your thoughts on it ? Or what other lessons did you learn from it ?
