I have to admit that this was my very first time watching a VeggieTales movie. My big sister and brothers have seen them before and while there are a few movies in the house I have never been one to grab them and watch. I am so sorry that I haven’t because I have been missing out on so much. The brand new Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever available for purchase now teaches the story of forgiveness.
Old bandmates from The Groovy Brothers, who have simmered in their own juices over a decades-old falling out rediscover, their friendship. The nefarious Bruce Onion peels back the layers of his bitterness toward the band and learns to be sweet. And Laura Carrot, after cutting her best pal Junior Asparagus out of her life over a mistake he makes, decides everything is better when they’re like two peas in a pod.
Each of them experiences the truth of Ephesians 4:12, the Bible verse Bob and Larry share at the end of the fresh and fun new DVD: “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
The Bible has a lot to say about forgiveness – and not just its ultimate expression of God forgiving our sins. Many other verses address the importance of us forgiving each other and the benefits doing so brings to relationships. Everything really is better when realize we’ll all in this big salad of life together!
The Bible offers many lessons in forgiveness, in addition to Ephesians 4:12. Parents of VeggieTales fans may find these verses helpful for discussions about the importance of forgiveness:
Love and forgives go hand-in-hand – even for animated vegetables!
1 Corinthians 13:4 – 6 NIV
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.”
With this being my very first time watching a Veggie Tales movie I was really surprised that it kept my attention the way it did. The animation really intrigued me complete with the songs. My favorite song was actually “Tear the Park Down”. I actually tried singing along. I’m sure your little one would too.
I know that I had a difficult time trying to forgive my brother for wanting to take my movie off so he could watch something else. I started screaming and actually hit him. That’s what he gets! In the end he was forgiven because he ended up watching it along with me and loved it too.
I recommend everyone getting a copy of Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever. You would love it as much as I did! This movie gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
