On Being Real
Written by Bethany Blankley
The Velveteen Rabbit nurtures our imagination to experience love and eternity in an inspiring and transformative way. Through this classic tale, we can learn more about ourselves, our relationship with others, and our relationship with God.
“What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit. “When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real,” said the Skin Horse, a wise toy in the nursery.
Being real for the Rabbit isn’t about being a toy but about wanting to be loved. Have you ever wondered what your purpose is and why you are alive? Scripture says we were created in God’s image to be loved by Him and to love Him.
