God’s Desire includes episodes focused around the theme of God’s desire for our lives.
These episodes include lessons on the Fruit of the Sprit, Salvation, and Loving your Neighbor.
With Theo, learning about God and who He's called us to be is easy and fun.
Lesson 14: Fruit of the Spirit
Luther demonstrates an “act of the flesh” as he bashes his thumb in the episode opener. More bad behavior follows as he covets Belfry’s cheese, giving Theo an opportunity to teach a lesson on the Fruit of the Spirit. He begins by illustrating some “humorous” acts of the flesh that humans often engage in, then he describes each of the spiritual fruits in the Shoebox Bible Theatre––love, joy, peace, and so on. Luther and Belfry think they’ve learned the lesson, until they try to outdo each other with acts of “kindness.”
Lesson 15 - Salvation
Scratch the cat is at it again, chasing Luther and Belfry. The mice escape onto a log in the river and think they’ve escaped danger until, plunging into the water, they are pursued by an even greater danger––a monstrous fish! A nail-biting chase ensues, where it’s certain the mice are goners. In desperation they cry out for Theo to save them, which he does, and uses the occasion to teach about Salvation. In the Shoebox Bible Theatre section Theo takes us on a journey along the “Romans Road,” where we learn how to be saved.
Lesson 16 - Love Thy Neighbor
Luther and Belfry are happily enjoying their lunch when they are surprised by a food thief––a mangy river rat named R.W. Wigglesworth, Esq. The mice don’t like river rats, because they carry...fleas! Theo tells them that they should love their neighbor, even though we may not get along with them. Yes, even rats! Using Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan, he shows us who our neighbor is, and how we ought to love them as Jesus loves us. Belfry takes the lesson to heart and gives Wigglesworth some of his cheese, an act of kindness that brings two enemies together in true friendship.
