A Lesson in a Colored Egg

When our children where little, Easter breakfast always started with a story.

Michael, my husband, would crack and peel a colored egg and continue something like this:

The shell represents two things; a heart hardened by sin & Christ’s tomb. His resurrection & the promise of salvation are illustrated by removal of the shell. As you allow Jesus into your life; your heart will soften and be made clean (egg white). When you are saved Christ’s light shines through you (egg yolk).

What started as a simple illustration became a tradition. Some day our grandchildren will hear the story too.
