Easter Thoughts

1 Corinthians 15:2-4

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

I have often wondered why Christmas gets more attention than Easter. After all, isn't the death & RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ as important as His birth??

The only thing "exciting" to me as a child when it came to Easter was getting a new Easter dress for church and eating a yummy ham dinner... and I guess that wasn't so bad, but why not celebrate it a little more than that?

I don't mean by joining in on the commercialism of marshmallow chickens, chocolate bunnies, and candy-filled eggs. I mean by making a point to talk about Easter with your kids, do Easter activities (focused on the true meaning of Easter), read the "Easter Story" from the Holy Bible as well as children story books (once again, only stories that portray the true meaning of Easter), decorating for Easter, and even giving your children special Easter gifts that can in some way represent the true meaning of Easter.

Something to ponder, hey?

What do you do for Easter with your children to make it special while celebrating the true meaning?

  1. I have been to busy looking for rental houses and planning on moving to do anything this year, but last year we did a scavenger hunt with our kids. You could do clues that are Biblical in some way , maybe leading up to finding the empty tomb???And when they ask why it is empty; talk about Jesus rising from the dead and then give them a bigger gift. Just some thoughts...

  2. Funny how God works...I have been thinking all month how we don't do anything for Easter but that we should. Then last night Leon, kids and I were discussing Easter and saying the same thing. Felicity asked if I had read your blog..nope I hadn't yet. Anyways kinda funny how God will lay the same things on different peoples hearts:) I am hoping to come up with some new traditions for Easter. I look forward to hearing from others as well.
