“Everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” -Luke 24:44.
In a world that seems to reject Christianity, many Christian holidays such as Easter or Christmas seem to be centered around traditions such as the Easter Bunny or Santa Clause. And although we can still incorporate those fun traditions, we should also emphasize the importance of the actual reason for these holidays. Easter is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, and it is our job as parents and caretakers to point our children to Christ in every way possible. Our goal should be to make memories with fun traditions while also connecting our children to Christ!
So… how can we incorporate Jesus and the Psalms into fun family Easter traditions?
During this episode, Lee Ann shares the importance of not only having traditions but also instilling truth and wisdom from the Bible regarding why we celebrate Easter in the first place. So perhaps instead of looking for Easter eggs, look for Jesus in the Psalms.
Here are just a few of the many passages where we can find Jesus in the Psalms:
If your children believe in the Easter bunny, point out that bunnies represent new life in the springtime and correlate that with the new life Jesus brings us. With younger children, don’t use slang words and phrases; use actual words such as “resurrection” and “sacrifice” so they can grasp the correct terminology to understand what Christ has done for us and why we celebrate this holiday in the first place.
