Jesus died so that WE can live. Period. That’s all that matters in our lives and our goal is to share that simple truth.
It doesn’t matter if you teach your kids this basic Truth through pictures, words, skits or crafts. The fact that you are teaching them this Truth is ALL that matters. If you are looking for a creative way, talk to some friends, visit your local Sunday School, check out Pinterest and “Google” for other ideas. In preparing for my post for this month’s topic of Easter Traditions, we don’t have any profound traditions we have done in the past. We didn’t grow up doing anything significant that I can remember, outside of going to church Easter Sunday which was then followed by an Easter Egg Hunt.
But I can guarantee you, the meaning of Easter wasn’t any less significant.
We grew up knowing that Easter was about Jesus. And Jesus dying for us. The same is true with my girls. Even my three year old knows the Truth. It helps to have amazing books like Shine Your Light Devotional, An Easter Prayer and The Story of Easter to share with them. You know these books have some pretty fantastic stories that kids can relate to. 🙂 I’m simply saying, don’t get paralyzed with all the comparing that can easily take place at this time of year.
