We’ve come to another Easter weekend.
And it’s so easy to just go through the motions, to walk past the pastel-colored Easter baskets and candy-coated chocolate eggs on our way to the toilet paper aisle.
It’s so easy to just be thankful for the day off from school on Good Friday so we don’t have to set alarms.
But if that’s all we see … we’re missing everything.
If the entire world were polled, I have a suspicion that a large segment of the population — if not the majority — would describe themselves as “empty.”
I read reports of celebrities who, in the world’s eyes, “had it all” — and still felt hollow and unsatisfied inside.
It makes me so sad, when we miss the One who offers to fill us up, to pour His abundant grace and love into us, to literally fill us with His Holy Spirit.
As Christians, we should be anything but empty.
Because the tomb is.
I did things a bit backwards this week for Five Minute Friday … The words above are my offering, written in five minutes flat, for our weekly link-up.
