On a recent visit to Orlando, Florida, I realized why it's called the "Theme Park Capital of the World."
Disney World theme parks and resorts cover 30,000 acres. As if that weren't enough, there's the competitive Universal Studios, the legendary Sea World, plus a plethora of smaller amusement parks like Legoland, Aquatica, and Discovery Cove.
All of these theme parks are successful because people love fantasy. There are a number of negative applications I could make about our desire to fantasize, but there's also a very positive one.
C.S. Lewis put it this way:
“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
I believe we love imagining things beyond our world because "our citizenship is in heaven" (Philippians 3:20-21). What do you think?
