Roswell and God

I’ve been watching the last episodes of Roswell series 2. Not a good use of my time I’ll admit, but the closing line of the final episode struck me. Here’s Max Evans, the steely leader making hard moral choices, he’s just banished his pregnant wife whom he has learned killed a good friend as part of a grand betrayal to the land of his enemies, and then when asked ‘What are we going to do now?’ answers ‘I am going to save my son’ (from his enemies). Determined, moral, natural. But it occurred to me to contrast it with God’s response to our grand betrayal, who answered the same question by saying ‘I am going to give up my son to save his enemies’. So why do I spend my time watching Roswell, rather than seeking this great King and Father? Go figure…..
