Good and evil are very real parts of our world. In a culture full of apathy, there is something very appealing about a group of people who will band together and do something to fight against the evil. In some ways, the imagined evil in the fantasy world of these stories can teach us something about the evil that is already present in our world.
At the end of the movie, Harry quotes Dumbledore (often the voice of wisdom in these stories) , saying
[...] even though we've got a fight ahead of us, we've got one thing that Voldemort doesn't have -- something worth fighting for.What are they fighting for? Friends and family, peace and laughter, truth? The answer is slightly ambiguous, but the statement is striking nevertheless, if only because it makes the fight of Voldemort seem so futile.
What are we fighting for? The joyful reign and light of Christ to permeate every part of our world, bringing glory to our triune God? That all may know this God of all love, beauty, grace and truth?
I challenge you to consider this question, and let the answer transform the way you live.
