Grace is an Easter egg hunt

I’m tired of people taking bad about Easter egg hunts and how they miss the point of Easter.

When Jesus was born, there were some people who knew their Bibles pretty well and who could tell you where the Messiah was to be born if you asked them. In fact, they were asked. And they got the answer right. (Good job, guys!) But they didn’t go. They stayed at home.

They didn’t go and look. And that meant they missed out on Jesus.

Easter egg hunts are all about looking. And finding.

There are a lot of us who never see God’s grace in action around us because we never look. No looking, no seeing.

But in the final words of Georges Bernanos’ novel Diary of a Country Priest, “Grace is everywhere.” The question is: Will we look for it? Will we find it?
