You know what I love about video games? They have a reset button. It doesn’t matter where you’re at in the game, or what you’ve done, all you have to do push that little button on the controller and whalla! The game resets and you are off to a whole new start. Now how cool is that?
I’m not a big gamer or anything, but I do love Super Mario Brothers. A few years ago when one of the new versions came out, I literally sat there and played until I beat the whole game. I had blisters on my hands, and my eyes were bulging out of my head!
Have you ever read the book “The Tortoise and the Hare”? I am pretty sure we all have right? Who always wins the race? The slow, humble, diligent tortoise, or the loud, cocky, boasting hare? If you have read the book then you know it is the tortoise. Why do you think that is?

What do you think the writer of this fable was trying to teach us? Who was the teaching for? Was it just for the kids or the adults too? Do you think the writer was trying to communicate to both the children and the adults at the same time? Was there a simple beautiful message that if learned and applied at a very young age could change our lives forever?
