Loving thrillers the way I do, I went with a friend to see the suspenseful movie “The Commuter” with Liam Neeson. Without giving away too much of the plot and a full movie review, I’ll just say that I was on the edge of my seat the whole time!
A woman approaches Mr. Neeson’s character and asks him a “hypothetical” question. What would you do if someone asked you to just do “one little thing.” No questions asked. If you do it you will get $75,000. Just like that. The whole movie is based on his response to that question. Guess you’ll just have to see it to find out what happened!
How many of us would take the bait? Would we risk our reputation, our integrity and our safety to do it? Are we that tempted by money?
I would like to think that I would turn it down. No matter how desperate I may be, no matter how tempted, I know that I already have the prize – I have all the riches I need. Yeshua gave His life for me, I have eternal life because of His sacrifice. And that is worth all the money in the world!
Would you do” just one little thing?” Would you submit your life today to Yeshua? Eternal riches await you my friends!

OK, I’m going to tell you something that I didn’t even post on Facebook. That’s right, you’re
hearing it first, right here on Down Home Shalom!
Just for fun I registered for a modelling agency. Yep, they occasionally have gigs for the “over
50” crowd. I figured it would be fun.
Back in October I got an email that if I was interested in being cast as an extra in a Jeff
Goldblum movie, I should contact the casting director directly. To make a long story short, I
was cast as an extra for a movie called “The Mountain.” While originally cast in a group scene
as a mental patient (please hold the laughter!), they picked me out of a lineup to do a dance scene with Jeff Goldblum!
I couldn’t believe it was happening! We danced, he twirled me around, we chatting in between takes about stuff – including that I was a Messianic Jew. He didn’t know what to make of that, but we had no time to discuss further.
Why am I writing about this here? Because I need to remember–and you need to remember-
that famous actors are just people. They are not Yeshua. They are not God. We need to treat
them like regular folks and pray for them.
Yes, it was an experience I’ll never forget. Will they keep the scene? When is the movie
coming out? Will he remember me? I don’t know the answer to any of these questions, but I
will pray for him to know Yeshua. Will you join me?
