Kids Korner: Road to Emmaus (April 23th)

Read Luke 24:13-35 with your family.

After Mary Magdalene and all the other women visited the tomb and found it empty, the Bible tells us stories about other people who met Jesus after he was alive again.

One of these it the Road to Emmaus. It tells the story of two people who didn’t recognize Jesus until Jesus broke the loaf of bread apart like he had done on the Thursday before with his followers. Then Jesus disappeared while they tried to figure out what had happened.

This story reminds us that sometimes Jesus is with us on gentle walks down the road. There doesn’t always have to be big drama when Jesus is around. Sometimes we can feel Jesus with us just while we are talking.

And sometimes it’s not until after something happens that we realize God was with us all along – we were never alone.
