Just when you think things can get no worse you see a headline like the one at The Daily Wire:
“Easter Is The Latest Holiday Hit By Inflation; Candy Prices Surge, Supply Shortages Abound”On the positive side it may save the lives of a few chicks and keep the blood sugar down on a lot of Americans. I consider it my patriotic duty to not buy any chocolate bunnies. I will leave them for the needy. It does make you wonder what the disciples would have done two thousand years ago if they had been faced with a lack of colored eggs.
It is a good thing that the resurrection is not influenced the same way as Easter. Jesus coming out of the grave on the third day is what we celebrate. I invite you to celebrate also, no extra charge and no shortage of forgiveness.
Full disclosure: I didn’t read the article and don’t expect you to either.
He is Risen.

He is risen, indeed! My first thought, when reading that headline, was that nothing can cancel Easter, and most certainly not anything having to do with the modern trappings folks have piled on.ReplyDelete
As much as they try the hope of the resurrection will still be real.Delete
Grace and peace
