“Tell the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your King is coming to you,
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.’’’ Matthew 21:5 (NKJV)


So Jesus the Messiah entered Jerusalem on a donkey. With His spreading fame and the eager anticipation of so many, He could have chosen a much more glamorous way to enter the city, yet He chose the lowly donkey. It was an expression of humility and simplicity on the Savior’s part, showing that He was here not for show but to prepare for His special destiny – a destiny which would produce a story which would never be rivaled.


As I ponder this part of his story, it also strikes me how it offers a shining example for all of us when we sometimes get carried away with our own lives. We often forget the true meaning of life, what got us here, and how we are merely a speck on the world stage. And I often ask myself: Why can’t we be more like Jesus?


The answer is because we are human. He was the only person ever on earth who was totally unselfish and always loving. It is because He was both God and Man. And I know that, despite repeated failures, we must try with His love and guidance to follow and be like Him. It is what He expects of us and the reward is everlasting life.
