The resurrection of Jesus changed everything.
But how do we help our kids understand the resurrection in a concrete way? How can we communicate to our kids the power that Christ has in our life?
Don’t get us wrong, we love chocolate and Easter eggs, but how can we make sure Easter isn’t just another holiday for our kids?
In this podcast episode, Dr. Josh and Christi Straub clarify four ways parents can turn the abstract message of the resurrection into a concrete message our kids can begin to understand.
- Live out the resurrection for our kids.
- Use resurrection eggs.
- Raise caterpillars. (This is Josh and Christi’s favorite.)
- Die to something that has power over you.
Being families who live, love, and lead well begins with the resurrection. Let’s not allow Easter to slip by as just another holiday. Instead, let’s be intentional about walking daily in the authority and resurrection of Jesus. Our kids are watching, and always learning.
