|Being Gentle Makes You Great|
October 30, 2020
Being Gentle Makes You Great is the tenth episode of The VeggieTales Show, which teaches a lesson in gentleness.
Jimmy and Jerry Gourd have ruined some of the Veggie show costumes by washing them on the heavy duty, extra-hard cycle. Bob is awfully frustrated and he is not gentle with his reply to Jimmy and Jerry. But they were only trying to help! It makes for a good time for a lesson about gentle actions and gentle words. It’s through the story of King Rehoboam in the Bible that the Veggies learn the meaning and importance of gentleness. As a result relationships are mended and the crew is happily back together again.
