Being a mother to two small children(5 and 19 months), it is on my mind often to keep my children filled with every little opportunity that I can to tell them about the love of Jesus, and to share Jesus with them. It is so easy to get sucked into the commercialization of all Christian holidays and lose sight of what these holidays really mean. The true meaning of them.
Tonight I stumbled upon this information from Focus on the Family, and thought it was really neat! I look forward to doing this with my children, and hope that if you have small children, you’ll feel encouraged to use as you wish too.
Teach them about Jesus by talking about what a real Easter Bunny is
Use a rabbit picture, a stuffed bunny or even a real one (if you are adventurous) to teach some of the characteristics of Jesus that we should all try to have. By adding a Bible verse to each quality, you will create a true Easter Bunny.
Real Easter bunnies:
- are white as snow because Jesus takes all sin away (Isaiah 1:18b).
- are gentle, kind-hearted and forgiving (Ephesians 4:32).
- have big ears that are quick to listen (James 1:19).
- have big eyes to look carefully and choose what is good (1 Thessalonians 5:21).
- have no voice for complaining or arguing (Philippians 2:13).
- are quiet in prayer, but hop with thanksgiving and rejoicing (1Thessalonians 5:21).
- have big feet to go tell others about Jesus so they can be like Easter bunnies, too (Matthew 28: 19-20).
- eat what is healthy by filling up on God’s word every day (Psalm 119:11).
