Egg Hunt Metaphor
And in the morning, the joy of discovery on his face sent a thrill to my heart. The moment reminded me that he's still a little guy who believes in magic. And I am so thankful for that. Because sometime soon, he will grow into the realism stage, seeking scientific explanations to guide his journey.
And when children are encouraged to believe in magical, unseen events and personalities, they construct the basic structure for the foundation of their religious faith.
An egg hunt teaches that there are treasures to be found on our path, given to us by God who is unseen. Our walk of faith includes many gifts hidden along the way for our discovery. Sometimes the gifts are in plain view, while others are discovered after years of seeking.
