Some of the most interesting wisdom can be found in kids cartoons. I should know this concept well since my wife and I have been blessed with seven beautiful children. One such piece of wisdom comes from the movie "Cars". I have seen this movie a hundred times or more. Sometimes it feels like a 100 times in one day! At one point the kids would just watch the movie over and over again never getting tired of it and always laughing at all the jokes as if it were the first time they had heard them. There is a scene from the movie that seems to play back in my mind from time to time. In the scene Towmater, a rusty old tow truck, is trying to teach Lightning McQueen, a finely tuned race car, how to drive backwards. Towmater does it with ease and the scene is pretty comical how Towmater just whirls around the country side in reverse leaving the rearview mirror lacking Lightning McQueen dumb founded as he watches Towmater drive in reverse. Then Towmater stops and says something amazing, brilliant, insightful, and convicting. Towmater says "its easy to know where your going when you know where you've been." Wow...what great wisdom from a G rated kids cartoon character.
The RV life will be a devotional that helps us remember our past so that we know how to move forward in our future. As our family travels throughout God's marvelous creation in this motorhome, sharing the love of Christ with those we meet, we will try to take a moment to reflect and share a note with you on what we have learned while gazing into The Rearview Mirror of our lives.
II Corinthians 3:18 NKJV - But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
