Frozen (love and fear)

   I know that y'all are already aware of my love for the Disney movie Frozen but I just wanted to give y'all a cool connection to the Bible to think about. The in my opinion, the thematic summary of the movie would go something like this:
 Elsa was extremely fearful that her lack of control over her      powers would cause her to hurt those around her. Because of 
 this she distanced herself from those she loved (aka everyone)  to prevent them from ever being hurt by her. In doing this, 
 she also lived in great fear that she would end up hurting  people despite her distance. During her years alone her 
 immense love continued but her plan left her unable to share 
 it so she had to keep it hidden away inside of her. It wasn't  until she allowed all the love she'd kept inside for years to  overflow  out of her that she learned to control her powers 
 and, therefore, banished fear.

   This directly relates to 1 John 4:17: There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out all fear.

   That is the theme of Frozen, really and truly! So even if not every aspect of Frozen is Biblical sound, it's theme most certainly is! Hope y'all find that as cool as I did! :)
