I’ll be back soon with some posts about our Easter festivities. But for today I just want to stop and contemplate what Easter really means.
It’s not about the Easter bunny, coloring eggs, big lunches, egg hunts or dressing up in new clothes, though all of those things can be a enjoyable part of your Easter tradition.
It is about the fact that Someone loved you (and me) so much, that He quite literally took a beating for us and ultimately laid down His life for us.
We would do well to ponder on the sacrifice more than on just Easter Sunday, but for this one day, let us give thanks for the greatest Gift mankind has ever received.
