Something that has always seemed to bother me about Easter is the whole, “Easter Bunny” thing. People have changed Easter from remembering that Christ rose from the grave to a childish candy and rabbits holiday.
Which is what they did to Christmas. I mean, c’mon his name is even in the holiday name! But… People make that holiday ALL about giving material gifts and making children happy. Again, forgetting we celebrate the birth of Jesus.
It’s just one of those things that irritates me. At least we celebrate Thanksgiving for what it really is… a time to give thanks and be with family and friends.. I think somehow it will get twisted into an obligitory gift giving holiday.. :-
Try and remember that He has Risen! When Jesus said, “You can destroy this temple and I will raise it again in 3 days” he wasn’t talking about a building. Our bodies are Temples of Christ.
