When Easter nears, I think of Easter baskets and how to communicate the Easter story to little ones. God tells us to think like children. “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3 NIV).
· In my children’s books, Really Rare Rabbits, the little rabbits hear someone teaching about Jesus. They listen. They press their ears to the window to hear more. As adults, are we too busy to listen to God’s voice?
· Do we press our ears to God’s heavenly window and listen to His voice or have we come away from God’s window and only hear the world’s noise?
· Even a child can hear the story of the cross and believe. It’s a simple message of love. Jesus came to earth to die for all that we might live with Him in heaven for eternity––if we only believe.
Easter is a time of renewal and reflection. Let’s reflect on all Christ did for us on the cross and lean our elbows on heaven's windowsill daily. And, let's determine to press our Easter ears to His window and listen to His voice on Easter morning and always––with our ears pressed like the little rabbits in my stories.
