Last night, we finished off a great weekend by piling into the living room and watching an older Disney film called “Meet the Robinsons” on one of the Disney channels. Its an OK movie, and I was really just halfway paying attention, messing around with some other things, eating ice cream, and just enjoying everyone’s company. Anyway in this movie, the motto “Keep Moving Forward” appears as it tells the story of not letting failure keep you down. It turns out this Disney film stole that motto from its founder – Walt ( I guess that’s not technically stealing is it?)
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
I think that a great way to start a Monday morning. It sort of reminds me of another great Disney movie, The Lion King, when Pumba says “You gotta put your behind in the past.” To which Timon replies “No no no, sit down before you hurt yourself, you gotta put your past behind you”
13Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14 (New International Version)
Keep Moving Forward!!
