I grew up watching cartoons about

Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner.


Recently

it occurred to me that

those cartoons can teach us a thing or two. 



Below is the

First

 episode of the

Roadrunner Cartoon.



Wile E. Coyote

wanted to

capture the Roadrunner to eat him.


Below

we see a real coyote and a real roadrunner.


Notice that

the coyote

never saw the roadrunner!

Facts about

Roadrunner birds

They love to run.

They can run up to 20 miles an hour.

They can fly but they prefer running. 

They cannot fly high

or

for long periods of time.


They are omnivores.

That means they eat both plants and animals.

This next video

shows

a real coyote trying to capture a real roadrunner.

On this page,

I want to show that

Wile E. Coyote 

can be seen as being

similar

to the devil.


The devil   

does not 

 want to catch us and eat us.


But the devil does

want to trick us

into sinning.


~ ~ ~

He tempts us to do wrong things.

He wants to cause us problems, sadness, and pain.


The devil is mean to us

because he wants to hurt Jesus.


The devil knows that

Jesus loves us dearly

so the devil wants to

hurt Jesus

by doing mean things to us.


Jesus loves YOU!

Jesus-hug-child

Do not forget that

Jesus loves YOU!

The roadrunner

never lets

Wile E. Coyote

trap him.


The roadrunner is always on the alert.

-

We need to be on the alert!

children-focus-looking


The roadrunner ruins the plans of

Wile E. Coyote 

by

Out running Wile E. Coyote

and

by

Out smarting him.


We cannot "out run" the devil

like the

roadrunner

in the cartoon does.


And...

We cannot "outsmart" the devil on our own.


But...

We can

have

victory

over

the devil...

BY

Reading the Bible!

children-Bible

When we read the

Bible,

we learn how to 

have

victory

over the devil.

mom-bible-reading-2


How does the Bible help us?

Here

is some understanding....


Before we do a sinful thing,

we think about it.


The Bible tells us

that we need to be

aware of our thoughts

and when

they are not godly thoughts,

we need to

push them out of our mind

and instead

do something good. 


We conquer bad thoughts

by doing good!


For older children read Romans 12:21 and 2 Corinthians 10:5 b .


Our Father God

wants every thought to be obedient to Jesus and the Bible.


If a thought

is not obedient to

Jesus and the Bible,

then we need to push that thought out of our mind.

Bible-boy

For example,

if a child does something mean to you,

and you are thinking of ways

to do mean things back,

then your thoughts are not obedient to Jesus. 



The Bible tells us to take every thought

captive

and then decide

if it is a good thought or a bad thought.  


For older children: Philippians 4:8 (meditate = think about)


Do not let

bad thoughts

conquer you

and get you

to do bad things -

but conquer bad thoughts by doing good.


good-idea-light-bulb

Consider this idea:

When you feel tempted to say something mean....

or

When you feel tempted to be selfish....

or

When you feel like telling a lie...

Just say,

"Beep! Beep!"

like roadrunner does

and then

refuse to do that bad idea.


Look around for something nice to do!

Consider singing a happy, praise song.


Here is a 

Happy Song

about 

Being Strong in the Lord!


God wants to help us

become

strong

and

stay strong

so we do not do

what the devil wants us to do.

For younger children, listen to this song...

Activity Idea


Activity

For

Parent / Grandparent

and

one or more children.

The adult needs to get into their silly mood!

You will need to...

Pick out a Bible song the child likes.

You will need to...

Put some activities on separate small pieces of paper...

such as 

Give a hug to a family member.

Read a Bible verse.

(Or listen as your parent reads a Bible verse.)

Hit someone.

Say, "I love you" to a family member.

Whine about something you do not like to do.

Yell, "I am mad."

Call a grandparent to say, "Hi."

("Hi Grandma. I'm playing a game and
I just want to quickly say, 'Hi' I'll call you later and talk longer.")

Squeeze toothpaste out onto the bathroom counter.

Say something kind to someone in the room

Drop food on the floor.

Draw a flower for someone in the room.


Option:

Fold the tiny pieces of paper

 - the papers that have good and bad activities on them - 

and put each one in a balloon and then blow up each balloon.

If you do, you will have

lots of colorful balloons to use in this activity.


birthday-prayer-3


Let each child draw one piece of paper.

( Or pick a balloon and pop it.) 

(Note: Young children are sometimes scared when a balloon pops.)

First child

reads the activity.

Then

mom or dad says,

"Let's take this thought captive."

The child dramatically holds the paper to his chest.

and

Mom or Dad says,

" For fun, I'll capture you while you decide what to do!"

(Capture means hug the child.)

And note:

if you have two adults

you could put the child in the middle of the two of you

like the image below

and then lower your arms to "capture" the child while he or she decides.


family-2024

Parent asks,

"Is this a good thought or a bad thought?

Child answers.

If
it is a good thought, then the child does it.

If
it is a bad thought, the child says, "Beep, Beep"
like the roadrunner,

and then
the
child
starts singing a Bible song
that you both have picked out for this activity.

You might want to play music with the song.
You might want to sing with the child.

Another    Activity    Idea 


Another Game Option:

For a parent/grandparent and two or more children


Make a Bingo game!


Make large, home-made Bingo cards.

Use the "good" ideas for the squares on the Bingo cards.

grandma

"Good ideas" are the ones from the previous activity

such as:

 Give a hug to a family member.

Put the good ideas on Bingo cards but not the bad ideas.


Call out the bad ideas but -  they won't be on the Bingo cards.

So when the parent calls out a bad idea,

the children say, "Beep Beep."

-

When the parent calls out a good idea,

the children look to see if it is on their Bingo card.

Notes:

Make multiple unique Bingo cards.

Make sure you do not put the same exact "good" ideas on each card. 

Get a small prize for the winner.

Play the game several times.

After each game, ask if a child wants to get a new Bingo card.

If

during your play time,

a child never wins a game,

give that child a consolation prize

and compliment that child on his or her attitude.


Helping a child

develop a good attitude

is an important part of parenting.

Stir up a fun,

lighthearted mood

when playing games with children.


Jesus tells us that

putting on his armor

is a great way

to become strong!
