The third grader’s lined up in the hallway outside my classroom like always. Their teacher turned to leave, but then quickly spun around and said, “Andy’s coming!”
Instantly, the whole class fell to the floor like a bunch of rag dolls. What in the world?!
Then it dawned on me: they were acting out a famous scene from the original Toy Story movie. The toys become lifeless whenever their young owner (Andy) comes around.
What the children did is a wonderful example of a class celebration–a mini flash mob to build camaraderie.
The whole scene brought to mind the certainty of the return of Christ, and the church’s possible reaction. How would you and I respond if the clouds parted and the trumpet sounded and someone said, “Jesus is coming!”?
It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when He comes.Luke 12:37 (NIV)
