For those who celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, this is a very special week. Easter. There are several different ways to approach this holiday, but we will get so much more out of it if we are intentionally preparing our hearts as we walk through this week.
We live in a world of excess. We buy food we never consume, we have an ever-present box getting filled for the thrift store, and our trash cans on collection day are overflowing. We have so much, we can’t possibly hold on to it all. We also live in a world of speed. Our food is quick, our cars are speedy, and our days move so fast that they start to blur together. These two things together, excess and fast, leads to a life that leaves us feeling empty and exhausted. But there is a way to counteract what the world is telling us to do.
