I don't know if you are familiar with "VeggieTales". They are an amazing video series for children that use vegetables to tell Bible stories and Biblical truth. I am thinking of a favorite of mine that is actually the story of David and Bathsheba. It is called King George and the Ducky.
This is a great retelling of a touchy Biblical story that seems to have "adult content". They did a fantastic job of telling about the situation in a totally different way. The reason I was thinking about this movie is the scene where the "prophet" goes to King George to explain his mistake to him. I LOVE THIS SCENE! He uses a flannel graph! There are time I would love to have someone bring out the flannel graph to explain my mistakes! And I confess that there are times that I wish that someone would use a flannel graph for someone else!
I love the things that I learn and/or remember after a day working with children. Isn't it amazing the things that Jesus will use to reach us? I'll be paying much more attention to my mistakes. And I will be praying that those 3 year olds make better choices to keep foreign objects out of bodily cavities!
Jesus, thank you for the reminder tonight of second and third and more chances. You are an amazing God that cares for us and teaches us with love and mercy and grace. Holy Spirit, thank you for those flannel graph reminders. Keep us sensitive and open to your correction. Bless the kids I work with and give me and all the teachers, wisdom grace and peace as we care for and educate these little ones. Amen
