Lorax Lessons

The Lorax was such an amazing movie. It spoke so much about the human condition. There were themes of greed, power struggles, hope, and redemption all wrapped up in a kids movie {They may have been some strong political tones of environmentalism, but we won't talk about that here today}. I really encourage you to go and see it, or at least read the book to your kids.

There were several part of the movie that I enjoyed but I thought I would share two pieces of wisdom from the Lorax.

"A tree falls the way it leans. Be careful which way you lean" Such a great reminder about self evaluation. So often we forget that we are in a spiritual battle and the sins and temptations of this world can easily pull our "tree" in all sorts of directions. Which way are you leaning?

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. We need to be people that care about the injustices of this world, because Jesus cared. If we choose not to do something about them, who will? We are to be His hands and feet to those around us. I don't know about you but I want to be someone who cares a whole awful lot.

Have any of you seen The Lorax? What did you think? What parts of the movie did you like or not like?
