IMPROVED BY ELIMINATION
Film maker Walt Disney was ruthless in cutting anything that got in the way of a story’s pacing. Ward Kimball, one of the animators for Snow White, recalls working 240 days on a 4 ½ minute sequence in which the dwarfs made soup for Snow White and almost destroyed the kitchen in the process. Disney thought it was funny, but he decided the scene stopped the flow of the picture, so out it went.
When the film of our lives is shown, will it be as great as it might be? A lot will depend on the multitude of “good” things we eliminate in order to make room for the great things of God.
