Wizard of Oz Quote - "There's no place like home. There's no place like home."


Almost every American has either seen or heard of the Wizard of Oz and the famous quote "There's no place like home." In the movie Dorothy goes around defeating evil to find a way back home. In the end, she discovers that she had the answer since she first arrived in the land of Oz. It's similar to our place with God. Some people feel lost in a world when something goes terribly wrong. After it goes wrong, we keep getting more lost and panicky until we are shown the way. God gives that free easy way home with no strings attached. He gave Jesus so that if we believe he saved us, we can be saved. God will also give us that chance to choose the impossible road. Satan makes that alternate way, but something will ALWAYS go wrong and we'll fall flat on our face and give up as we sense the impossible. Jesus, just like the good witch, will always be waiting to give us advice and, when we ask, show us the way home. If we realize this maybe we can give others a heads up and help them get off of the impossible road.
