Episode Summary

The New Skates
Davey gets a package and it's a pair of new ice skates. Davey's mom tells Davey not to ice skate yet because the temperature is not cold enough to make the pond solid enough to carry Davey's weight. Davey then shows his pal Jimmy his new skates and Jimmy suggests that Davey try them out. Davey then says that he can't and Jimmy suggests they go to the pond and look at it. While they are at the pond, Jimmy samples the ice and so does Davey. After walking on it for a little bit, they both decide that the ice is thick enough and the two go skating. After skating some, Davey gets in a bad area and then falls into the ice pond. While struggling to get out, he loses his skate. Worried about Davey, his mom catches him and takes him home. Davey apologizes for disobeying his mom and she forgives him.moreless

      • The message of this story is a double-whammy. First off, Davey disobeyed his mother. Parents are suppose to tell children things for their child's own good, not to try to deprive them of fun. That is why God gave us the 10 commandments. He gave them to us for our own good and to save us from the unwanted consequences that life can give us. He didn't make them to deprive us of our fun although it has been perceived that way for some time now. The other message in the story is that when we love someone, we forgive them. Even though Davey disobeyed, he learned his lesson and was sorry for his disobedience. His mother was glad to see that Davey turned out alright and she forgave him out of love.
