Why is it so much easier to adopt a DIY tradition, like decorating the Christmas tree and painting eggs, over adopting a tradition of …I don’t know…praying, reading the Bible, seeking God.
Don’t get me wrong. I love DIY projects and even more if it’s around holidays. I’m passionate about crafting and I like to believe I’m pretty good at it. But it’s still just a decoration. I can’t let it be MY ONLY HOLY TRADITION. I can’t let it be THE ONLY THING THAT DEFINES MY FAITH and the only way of showing it.
Why is it easier to believe that Jesus’ blood dripped over eggs, so we start painting them every single year, than it is to believe and acknowledge that HE IS ALL POWERFUL, HE REIGNS over everything and those damn red eggs don’t mean anything to Him, if He doesn’t have you.
I am not trying to dismiss or disrespect traditions. I am simply stating that we should also implement traditions for eternity.
You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29.13
Whoever has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me. The one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them. John 14.21
