Thoughts on Unicorns

Sun, 2012-03-25 23:08 -- Tim Urban

I know that title probably doesn’t make much sense but here me out. Unicorns and things like that are obviously not real. But does that mean we shouldn’t care about them? No! There are a lot of stories that aren’t true that have had a huge impact on my life. Stories like The Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings. Stories that are about how good triumphs over evil and how in the end doing what’s right is the only thing worth doing. Now granted there are true stories that have the same message. The most important story of all, the one about Jesus Christ is the greatest story ever lived. And really all the stories that have truly impacted my life have been ones that echoed the truth of the bible. But still there is something about fantasy tales that has, at times, captivated my imagination in a very powerful way.
The point that I’m getting at is this. There are true stories that can and shouldn’t impact our lives. But there are also fairy tales and stories that only live in our imaginations that can also change the way we live. And that is something that I love.
