The Parable of the Lily - a Review
Would you like to give your child something special for Easter this year? Would you like to give them a gift that would have lasting value and would have a definite impact on his or her life?
Easter is not so much a time of bunny rabbits and Easter eggs as it is a time of forgiveness and rebirth. The Parable of the Lily is a beautiful Easter story written by Liz Curtis Higgs. The author has written several entertaining fiction books, non-fiction books, and children's books. In The Parable of the Lily, she reveals the true spirit of Easter in an entertaining tale that everyone, children and adults, will love to hear.
Maggie is a little girl who love to receive gifts. On one cold, snowy winter day she receives a letter that tells her a very special gift is on its way to her. She is so excited. Could it be a new doll? Maybe it is a new game. Or it could be something even better, something she wants even more. She has no clue who the gift is coming from or why it is being sent to her, but that doesn't matter. It is a gift!
Her excitement quickly turns to disappointment when the gift arrives and she finds it to be just a box of dirt. The instructions included say to water it every day and wait, but it is just a box of dirt. She takes the box down to the cellar and hides it away in the darkest corner she can find. As disappointed as Maggie is, will she ever discover what is hidden away in the dirt?
That is as much as I'm telling of the story. But something wonderful happens, something that is such a perfect picture of what our Lord and Savior experienced. How you share this story with your children is up to you, but there are Bible verses at the bottoms of the pages to help you tell the story of the death and resurrection of Christ as you read about the parable of the lily.
