When I Grow Up
Posted On: 2021-02-12
In the popular movie “Big,” actor Tom Hanks plays the part of Josh, a boy who gets catapulted into the future after making a wish at a carnival. That night, Josh went to bed as a boy but he woke up the next morning as a full-grown man! At first, his new life was fun and exciting, but after a while, Josh realized that he had been robbed of his boyhood. He never had those early years of thinking and dreaming about what kind of a person he wanted to be someday. Everybody in his life expected Josh to be an adult, but he had not learned how. This story reminds us that it’s not good to grow up too fast. Boys should enjoy being kids. They should try doing a lot of different things; give themselves a chance to succeed at some things but not to be too hard on themselves when they fail at other things. God created boys to be kids first and adults later. So don’t be afraid to dream big things for your future, but remember that for the present you are a kid. Have fun and enjoy every minute!
