You Are Important- Inspirational Thoughts

Horton Hears a Who- Dr. Seuss

The book tells the story of Horton the Elephant, who while splashing in a pool, hears a small speck of dust talking to him. Horton surmises that a small person lives on the speck and places it on a clover, vowing to protect it. He later discovers that the speck is actually a tiny planet, home to a community called Whoville, where microscopic creatures called Whos live. The Mayor of Whoville asks Horton to protect them from harm, which Horton happily agrees to, proclaiming throughout the book that “a person’s a person, no matter how small.”

In his mission to protect the speck, Horton is ridiculed and harassed by the other animals in the jungle for believing in something that they are unable to see or hear. He is first criticized by a sour kangaroo and her little kangaroo in her pouch. The splash they make as they jump into the pool almost catches the speck, so Horton decides to find somewhere safer for it. However, news of his odd new behavior spreads quickly, and he is soon harassed by a group of monkeys. They steal the clover from him and give it to Vlad Vladikoff, a vulture (formerly a black eagle). Vlad flies the clover a long distance, Horton in pursuit, until the eagle drops it into a field of clovers. (Courtesy of Wiki)

The Message

YOU ARE IMPORTANT TO GOD. No matter how small you are to self or to others. No matter what others think of you or say about you, YOU are still the person that God created. YOU are still the person that God has a will for you to do. He hears and sees everything that you do. He is our Heavenly “Horton Hears A Who” that vows to protect those who are in Christ Jesus…You.

You too can find many revelations about self, others, and life in quite a few old children’s books. Take a day or two out of your busy life and just be a child, or just take 25 minutes to watch the movie above. There are a lot of Horton’s around that the Lord has placed in your life, some you know and some you don’t know. Praise the Lord! It pays to have big ears! 😛

Enjoy The Day Beloved! 

I Love You
