Listen to the Little Child

Years ago I was told an inspirational incident: A teacher had asked the children to bring back from Easter celebrations something that made Easter meaningful to them.  Easter Monday the children enjoyed showing each other what they had brought.  They all made fun of one little fellow that they considered “slow” or “out of it” because all he brought was an egg shell.   However, that was only until the teacher asked the little boy its meaning. With the simplicity our Lord recommends, the child said joyfully: “Well, the shell is empty because He IS risen.”  The classroom was filled with stunned silence and admiration.
