Easter is a wonderful time of the year to reflect on the death and resurrection of Christ. It’s a great time to share with your children that Jesus was treated unfairly, misjudged and died for our sins. The story of Easter is powerful.
It’s important not to let the easter bunny get in the way of true meaning of the season. I love the movie the passion of the Christ and it does not matter how many times you see it, you are moved to tears.
So how do you teach your children about it’s meaning? Sit down and read the story to them. You can make the story age appropriate. It is absolutely a must that they understand that Jesus was condemned unfairly, suffered , was killed by crucifixion, and three days later he rose again. This is the most important fact of the bible because if it was not for his death, we would not be forgiven of our sins and we would live a life in hell.
I pray that the Lord prepares your hearts for Easter and that you take the time to reflect on the importance of this holiday.
