The most difficult situations can teach us a lesson. It is what educators refer to as a “teachable moment.” I learned a lot from watching Disney movies with my daughter Taylor. After watching them nearly five times a day, I have found valuable lessons in each of her favorite films. From the Little Mermaid I learned that a woman should never lose her voice in a relationship. Eventually she will need to speak.
From the Princess and the Frog I learned that sometimes prince charming can turn into a frog and sometimes a frog can turn into a prince. Basically, what is on the inside is what matters the most because looks can be deceiving. I learned a very valuable lesson from the movie Finding Nemo. Our parents are important and even though we think we may know what is best, disobedience can get us in a lot of trouble, even as adults. Nemo was disobedient and ended up captured and swimming in an unknown place. His disobedience and rebellion almost cost him his life. It was only by grace that he was able to find his way home. Learning from our experiences is an important part of life. If we allow ourselves to, perhaps we can learn the lesson before we make the mistake. Good Lessons + Good Experiences = A Good Life
Wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. (Proverbs 24:14)
