Lessons From A Vegetable
My kids have been in a Veggie Tales movie-mood lately. It seems like every time they get to pick a movie, the Veggies get selected.
Not that I mind. The songs are catchy, the jokes are funny and the stories are spot on. And if all else fails, I can snooze for a good thirty minutes and know they won't move.
The two most selected Veggie movies in our household are Abe and the Amazing Promise and Josh and the Big Wall. Both great, fun movies.
The other day, I found myself completely engaged in these stories myself, when it occurred to me that God's word is living. It's active. It's always applicable. And there can always be something new to learn (or to be reminded of) at any age. His word speaks to the heart no matter how many times you've heard it before.
I love that!
So for fun...here are the two simple lessons I learned (re-learned) from Bob and Larry.
- God's way is the best way. Even if you don't understand God's directions in your life, don't worry. He's there. And He is faithful.
- God's timing is perfect. Sometimes it's hard to wait. Don't I know it! Patience is not a gift of mine. BUT God sees the big picture that we can't see. He knows when the timing is right for you.
Do the simple messages of the Bible ever seem new and exciting to you? What Bible lesson are you happy to learn over and over again?
