Pinocchio The Boy Seemed To Do Everything Wrong

1043 words - 5 pages

The story of Pinocchio is very interesting. It shows what could happen to everyone if they do not obey. The story can be very much likened to the Christian's walk. Pinocchio had many experiences, both good and bad. He is an example to all of what their actions do to them. Pinocchio had a very interesting life, first as a marionette, then as a donkey, and last but not least, a boy.
Pinocchio was a marionette made out of wood. He was naughty from the beginning, just as people are sinful from the very beginning. He was mischievous with each part of the body. As soon as his mouth was done, he “began to laugh and poke fun at”1 his maker. As soon as his hands were completed, he pulled his creator's wig off and did not give it back. His feet got in mischief, for as soon as they were finished, one foot gave a “sharp kick”2 to the nose of the maker. He was even mischievous after he was made, for as soon as he learned to walk, he “flew”3 out the door into the streets. At some point in the story he ended up having to be home all by himself. Here, the story shows what happens when he tries to live on his own. He shows us an allegory for what might happen when we live away from Christ. One of his troubles was he could not get anything to eat. In his search for food, he found an egg. He prepares the pan and the fire so he could make the perfect omelet. When he cracked the egg, out came “a little yellow Chick,”4 that flew away into the sky. In desperation, Pinocchio goes out into the street looking for food. He finds nothing but a cold shower from someone who thought that he was a annoying little street boy. He continued to have trouble. Since he was wet, he sat by the fire and during the night his wooden feet caught on fire. In spite of all that happened, Pinocchio's father just picked him up and and made him new feet, just as our Heavenly Father gives us new “feet” even though we have messed up our paths. Throughout Pinocchio's life, he continued to make good and bad choices. He would start out good, "I promise to go to school every day, to study, and to succeed..."5, then something would to detour him from the good path, such as the temptation to sell “his A-B-C book to pay his way into the Marionette Theater.”6 Things like this happen over and over in his life that lead him into a spiral of unchangeable deeds, that lead him deeper and deeper into trouble. All of this shows that being naughty does not help anyone be a better person. Pinocchio started out as naughty and it seems like he will end that way as well. This also shows that only trying to do right will not end up with one doing right.
The next part of Pinocchio's life shows what consequences happen as...
