Bugtime Adventures: Riding For A Fall


Riding for a Fall: The Story of Elisha healing Naaman. Naaman, a general in the army, arrives home after a victorious battle. But while he was gone, his leprosy has spread. He goes to see the prophet Elisha, who sends his servant out with instructions for Naaman to follow. Naaman is angered at Elisha’s behavior but follows the instructions and is healed.

Dove Review

The “Bugtime Adventures” always brings to life a wonderful story from the Bible through the eyes of bugs. This episode teaches about following directions and doing as you are told, as Naaman tries to find healing from a terrible disease and the little group of bugs go to find hard wood for the new library.

Naaman is told by the prophet Elisha to dip in the river seven times, but instead of doing as he is told he grumbles the entire time. He has no faith, ignores what he was told to do, and is blinded by his own pride. While the little group of bugs is told by the mayor to follow his instructions to get the new wood, Antoni decides on his own he can find a faster way without team work. Of course this causes a few problems. Both Naaman and the bugs learn a valuable lesson about the importance of doing exactly what you are told.

The Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages is awarded to this Bugtime tale that will entertain young and old alike.
