i have never read or heard the back story of the tin man but this short film is incredible. really it’s worth the 20 minutes it will take for you to watch it. i wonder how many people are forced into efficiency because of things placed on them, decided they like that efficiency, and then lose sight of who/what they were working for in the first place. as a pastor i know this this is personally a temptation for me. it is real easy to work to reach, provide, care, etc. for people you love and in the process begin to focus more on the work than on the ones that you were working for. it is real easy for us to lose our “hearts.”
i hope and pray that all those who have lost their “heart” will find it again. even better than that – i hope and pray that non of us ever lose our “hearts” in the first place.
