Runaway Bunnies

Tonight I read “The Runaway Bunny” by Margaret Wise Brown to Anna at bedtime. We’ve read it a thousand times… the story of a little bunny who wants to run away from his mommy, but she pledges to pursue him endlessly no matter where he should go because she loves him so much. It is a great tale of the relentless, unconditional love that a mother (or father) has for her child. And tonight, it finally clicked in my head what a beautiful picture the story is of God’s love for us. The “Hound of Heaven” pursues each of us little “runaway bunnies” tirelessly in His great grace and mercy and love for us. No matter where we may try to run or hide, He will seek us, constant in His love, even to the end of the age.
