I’ve always wondered why it is we prepare for Christmas for a whole month, but we spend maybe a week on Easter. The foundation of Christianity, what it’s all about, and we spend a week talking about it.
But then at some point I started learning more about the Catholic faith and they have a whole season devoted to preparing for Easter, Lent.
Now, I’m not going to become a Catholic because I love my Protestant beliefs, but I think preparing for Easter is one of the things the Catholic church got right.
How we are preparing for Easter this year
I found a great resource from Kids in the Word called So Much Bigger than the Bunny (affiliate link).
I think I stand a good chance of actually finishing this study because it’s simple. I always try to make Bible studies complicated and add in all sorts of extra things to do, and this is only a few minutes a week.
I also very much appreciate her heart for discipleship. “As parents we have a high calling from Christ. He has entrusted us with His children for a time, to raise them to love Him and be used by Him. They are not ours.” This is what I’m trying to remember as I raise my kids.
Would you join me for this Bible study during Lent this year? I’m very much looking forward to this, and can’t wait to see how God uses this study in our lives this year.
