Main Idea

In the beginning of Monsters Inc, we are greeted with a society whose norm was to send monsters into childrens’ rooms daily to scare them. We see that Sully and the other monsters believed that the children themselves are harmful and scary. The introduction of a child named Boo helped Sully to realize their backwards way of thinking. Instead of scaring kids, the monsters could make them laugh. This story shows us that children are greatly important and have the power to make monumental change. Jesus even emphasizes the power of having faith like a child – that even adults could learn from the way that children see the world.


Mark 10:13-16 NIRV

13 People were bringing little children to Jesus. They wanted him to touch them. But the disciples told the people to stop.
14 When Jesus saw this, he was angry. He said to his disciples, “Let the little children come to me. Don’t keep them away. God’s kingdom belongs to people like them.
15 What I’m about to tell you is true. Anyone who will not receive God’s kingdom like a little child will never enter it.”
16 Then he took the children in his arms. He put his hands on them and blessed them.
