Lucy, Susan, Peter, and Edmund were exploring and looked in every room in the house. They came to one long room with pictures armor and a big wardrobe. They all left except Lucy because she wanted to see the wardrobe (5, chap. 1). When she went into it she discovered snow and tree branches (6, chap. 1). Peter, Susan, and Edmund leaving resembles us not seeing the beneficial opportunities in life and just blowing them off. Lucy staying and exploring resembles us discovering and being aware of the opportunities in front of us and exploring them to open doors to bigger things.
When Lucy came back to from Narnia and she found the other three. She explained to them what had happened and they denied her and forced themselves not to believe her (20-21, chap. 3). That is like when we constantly deny the good things in front of us and try try not to see them. When They decided to play hide and seek Edmund was saw Lucy jump into the wardrobe. When he went in he couldn’t find Lucy but instead saw a light and walked toward it. Then Edmund himself was standing in Narnia (24,25, chap. 3). That represents when we see a hint of goodness in front of us and run for it until we succeed.
The kids met aslan and were nervous because they knew the power he had. They introduced themselves so he could help them get edmund. (124 chap. 12). That is like when we go to God for the first time and become Christians so he can help us and be our savior. Throughout part of the book the kids believe and rely on Aslan to save Edmund (124,125 chap. 12). That is like us Christians believing that God can and will save us.
It was important for Lewis to use the theme of discovery to show there are better things in life but they may not come to us. We may have to work for that good thing in our life. God is good to us and he may let something bad happen but there is always a good thing that can come from that. We have to strive to see that good and positive thing.
