Anything Special?

Standard

A friend recently raised the question of whether there were anything special about Good Friday or Easter or other holidays. This was my reply:

Sure there is. We remember these things throughout the year, but set aside special days for conscious and concentrated celebrations, full-blown and focused feasts of specific chapters in God’s story. These events would be less glorious without the everyday remembrances. They’d be like celebrating a stranger’s birthday rather than a loved one’s. The more you are invested with every other moment of your life, the more you will care about the special events that honor the one you love.
