Perfect Love vs. Freezing Fear

Since I first watched Disney’s Frozen, I’ve fallen in love with it,  It is a beautiful, sweet story that brings a fun twist to an old fairy tale.  But what I like about the movie best is that it is a story that has a moral to it! 😉

Perfect love casts out fear

At the beginning of the movie we meet Princess Elsa, a girl brought up and hidden away in fear.  She has special talents and powers.  Instead of learning to deal with them, she hides them…  We’re also introduced to Princess Anna, her younger energetic sister who is sweet and bubbly, but lacks wisdom and is easily taken advantage of…she’s waay too boy crazy.

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls.”

Proverbs 25:28

When the girls reach maturity Princess Anna lacks wisdom, and the newly coronated Queen Elsa lacks love and the ability to successfully articulate her intentions and perspective in a persuasive way.  When confronted with an obstacle, Anna rather foolishly embraces it.  On the other hand, when Elsa is confronted by an obstacle her tendency is to be frozen in fear and anger, which turns everything around her to ice!  Elsa’s powers are now uncontrollable when she is fearful, and who knows what will turn to ice around her?!

“The fear of man bringeth a snare.”Proverbs 29:25

After displaying her fear and anger, Queen Elsa flees the Capitol.  Never afraid of an adventure, Anna approaches Elsa in Elsa’s tower of icy fear, with a ice-pick carrying villager Kristoff in tow.  The girls have a heated discussion and Elsa’s fear gets the better of her, leaving piles of ice around the tower great room and Anna with a frozen heart.

“Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry, for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.

Ecclesiastes 7:9

Anna discovers that the only thing that can save her freezing heart is an act of true love– a kiss!  So…Anna heads off on a race against time to get a kiss from the wicked Prince Hans [of the Seven Isles] she’d just met.  She thinks she’s fallen head over heels in love with this prince.  The Prince doesn’t love her and while she’s been out on a quest to find her sister and discover how to cure her heart, he has imprisoned Queen Elsa and taken control of the Capitol.

“A truthful witness delivereth souls, but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.”
Proverbs 14:25

Princess Anna reaches the Capitol and asks for a kiss.  Prince Hans admits he doesn’t love her and really wants her kingdom, leaving her for dead.  Queen Elsa escapes the dungeon and rushes for the frozen fjord…Anna has also fled from the Capitol.  As Anna races across the fjord toward her true love [Kristoff] she sees that Elsa has been confronted by the wicked Hans who draws his sword to kill her.  Anna is forced to choose between the young man she realizes loves her, and saving her sister.  Anna chooses to save her sister, blocking the sword of Prince Hans while simultaneously freezing solid.  With Anna frozen solid, Elsa realizes how far her fear has taken her and offers her sweet, though often careless, sister a kiss.  Magically (or miraculously) the fear that froze Anna is dispelled and she returns to normal.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

I John 4:18
