Today’s egg had a spear in it and we read from John 19:32-34.
We talked about the robbers and how they got their legs broken but when they got to Jesus, he was already dead. So, they took a spear and stuck it in his side. We said this was a sad story and a true story. What a horrible way to die! And then we remembered that Jesus did that because He loves us- all of us who have done things that are bad- lied, stole, disobeyed, etc…which is everyone. Even the soldier who stabbed Him.
Ethan then walked in with a book about Easter and we marveled at what a prodigy he is because he knew that Easter was soon and he could pick the appropriate book…we’re biased though.
