In preparation for the Stations of the Cross, our Sunday School kids pulled together to put up one of the stations.
This colorful cross was made by the children of our Sunday School out of egg shells. Every egg represented each of our lives – cracked by sin, crushed by the world. Yet, a beautiful mosaic is formed when we see our brokenness in the context of the Cross.
With this Station, the kids are encouraging us to think about our lives – cracked by sin, crushed by the world. To cope, we try to cover it up, patch it back together, or simply just live defeated. However, we need to think about that heavy cross that Jesus bore to Golgotha and remember that the cross He bore was for us. Only when we can see our brokenness in the context of the Cross, will we start seeing our lives as the beautiful work of His hands.
So, please accept the invitation of our Sunday School kids to spend some time during this week’s Stations of the Cross, looking at the cross and reflecting on this thought.
