Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. (Philippians 4:8)

FOR OLDER KIDS AT HOME:
Perhaps you were able to see The Call of the Wild before the shut-down. This is a fine Disney movie for families. Out of curiosity, I read the original book by Jack London. The book is short and accessible for kids, although the “wild” is much wilder in the book. London speaks often about the “law of fang and club.” Disney also changed the sex and race of certain characters — the movie has a mixed-race couple delivering the mail, and the villain is a white man. I won’t spoil the book by revealing London’s original villains.
This would be an interesting book to read and discuss if you have older (10+) kids at home, especially boys. You could read Job 39 (God’s care for the wild animals) and compare that with London’s “law of the wild.” You could also discuss the difference between animals and mankind. The Disney movie made the animals more human-like, while the book hints that perhaps humans are more animal-like. Lots of potential for family discussion here.
