Christ or Easter Bunnies?
I know it’s fun to hide eggs and let the little ones hunt for them, but are we sending them a mixed message? I think so. I’ve taught Jr. Church and Children Sunday Schools for years. Sometimes I only get kids once maybe twice a year, usually on Easter. When I ask the question – What is Easter all about? The usual answer shouted out is – The Easter bunny. Easter is so very much more. In fact, it is the sum of all we believe in because if Christ really didn’t die for our sins, be buried, rose again the third day, and is seated in the heavenlies until His future return – then our faith is indeed in vain. Personally – I believe it’s all true with every bit of my heart.If you’re intent on doing the egg hunting, then also take the time to tell them the true story of Christ on the cross and how very much He loves each and everyone of us.
Have a blessed and safe Easter Weekend.
