There is nothing more inspiring than a line of children waiting by the starting line for the magical, “Go!” Then their off, searching under every single rock and twig for a bright colored egg.
And don’t even think you can distract them, steal their eggs or even keep one for yourself. They will straight away inform you that adults aren’t allowed to hunt the eggs.
As a mom I have developed a survival strategy for egg hunting. You see, there is that little thing called the Easter induced sugar rush that many children fall prey to by the end of the day.
They bounce, hop, ping-pong and Tigger themselves everywhere. Keeping up with them would wear out Richard Simmons and you all know how hard that is to do.
My survival technique: hide change not candy. They get some candy at different times of the day, but not so much on the egg hunt.
What great spiritual truth is found in an Easter Egg Hunt?
The heart of a seeker. Kids won’t let anything keep them from finding that last egg. They will climb under porches, scale fences and just about anything to find what they are seeking.
The Bible tells us to be seekers:
“You will seek me and you will find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Do you seek God with all of your heart? Are you an Egg Hunt Jesus Seeker?
