In the movie, "The Hunger Games," 16 year old Katness is faced with a dramatic choice when her 12 year old sister is chosen by lottery to fight for their district. She knows her sister is small and frail, and that she would not last in the life or death battle.

Her choice is to volunteer to be "tribute" in her sister's place, knowing it could cost her own life. Was her choice out of love, fear, desperation...or all?

In the Bible, John 15:13 says, "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." Previously, at the end of John 13, he said "by this all will know that you are My disciples; if you have love for one another." Then in 15:13, He says there is no greater love than to give your life for a friend.
