Last night as I walked through the kitchen, I noticed a half empty bag of leftover Easter candy on the counter. I stopped and asked my four kids, "Who has been eating my candy?" My nine year old spoke and said "Me Dad, I love that candy." I picked it up and began to walk toward the pantry with it, and he said with nervous excitement in his voice, "Dad, don't throw that away?" I assured him that I was not going to throw it away (because after all, it is my favorite too) that I was just placing it back in the pantry. He sighed and rested easily back into his homework thankful that I was not discarding his dinner.
As I reflect on that brief candy exchange with my son, it makes me wonder how many of us have already either thrown away or put into the pantry of our hearts the miracle that we celebrated just a few short days ago. As we move into the rest of the year, make it a point to live each day in celebration of what Christ did on the cross for you and me.
"Let me now remind you, dear brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then, and you still stand firm in it. I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said."
Life was not meant to be experienced alone. We believe that life is best lived in relationship with others. Often times, it is in these unique relationships that we find encouragement, gain support, and grown in our faith.
