Some things are impossible to forget. I learned one such lesson 20 years ago and it is seared indelibly into my memory.
He was on an Easter Sunday afternoon. I was hurriedly preparing to return to preach in the Sunday evening service. I wanted something to eat—something with a bit of protein—and noticed there were some hard-boiled eggs on the counter left over from the morning Easter festivities.
I peeled two or three of the eggs, put a bit of salt on them, then I got to thinking they might be tastier if I warmed them up in the microwave. I popped them in a bowl and warmed them up for a few seconds in the microwave.
I pulled the eggs out of the microwave. They looked great and that’s when things got really memorable. I put a little extra dash of salt on one and bit into it. That is when it exploded in my mouth burning my tongue and creating an unforgettable Easter memory.
So just this: Jesus is alive. Boil eggs. Color eggs. Hide eggs. Decorate eggs. Eat hard-boiled eggs, just don’t warm them up in a microwave and bite into them. That will create a memory you won’t be able to forget, even if you want to.
