Something Worth Fighting For

What’s worth fighting for in your life?

One of my favorite quotes from J.R.R. Tolkien isn’t actually a quote he wrote. It’s from The Two Towers film from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. But it says something so profound, I’ve never forgotten it:

There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.

The Two Towers (2002 film)

Sam is not big, strong, famous, educated, or exceptional… except that he is in the ways that count the most.

Samwise Gamgee wise and loyal and brave. He’s willing to go the extra mile. He stands by his word and stands with his friends.

He stands strong for the mission, for the cause. He stands strong so that good might have a chance over evil. For Middle-Earth. For the Shire.

He’s willing to even give his life.

Still Worth It

I think many of us need to believe (and be reminded) that there’s still plenty of good in this world that’s worth fighting for.

In our families, our friendships, our parenting, our neighborhoods, in our cities, and in our nation and world.

Thank you to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives for my freedom and protection. Thank you for believing that there’s still much that’s worth fighting for.

Who are you honoring today? Who are you remembering?

Wishing you all a very blessed and meaningful Memorial Day!

Grace and peace,

  1. I’ve just finished the Little Women’s devotional book and have been ever so blessed that you had the idea to do something like this! This is one of my all time favorite books and movies as well. I read it for the first time when in junior high and have been reading it through out the years as well. I’m drawn to the love their family had for each other as well as their closeness. I just read all of Marmee’s wise words and was so touched by reading them as a group. You did a wonderful job arranging it and I could tell you loved the book as much as I did. I look forward to reading your devo of another favorite of mine, Anne of Green Gables. Many blessings and thanks to you Rachel. Sincerely, Annette Novinger

    1. Thank you, Annette! This means more than I can ever say. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Little Women is so dear to my heart, and I can tell you feel the same way! I hope you enjoy The Anne of Green Gables Devotional! xx
