A Three-year Old, Sacrifice & Big Hero 6

I wrote this morning on my other blog - grandma's cookie jar - about the animated movie, Big Hero 6 and how it tends to be a favorite with my grandsons . . . no big surprise as there are super heroes, robots, bad guys who get caught and excitement. It also has a solid message of family, friends, relationships and sacrifice . . . which I’m surprised to say, my three-year old grandson understands.

Friday when his Poppa was bringing him home after work for a sleep-over, he apparently had much to say about how Baymax (the robot) sacrificed himself for Hiro. “Sacrificed”??? What three-year old knows what this word means and is able to identify a character who sacrificed themselves and for whom they sacrificed themselves?

Apparently this three-year old can!

So, today I want to encourage you to consider the following "take-away" from this story and use it in your ministry by challenging families to watch Big Hero 6 with their children and grandchildren and remind them to be sure to talk about the solid messages of family, friends, relationships and sacrifice in the movie and how Jesus sacrificed Himself for us. 

I love it when a movie gives me the opportunity to have important and meaningful conversations with my grandsons! Apparently Big Hero 6 is one such movie.
