Tell the people of Jerusalem, ‘Look, your King is coming to you. He is humble, riding on a donkey— riding on a donkey’s colt.’ Matthew 21:5
As we walked up the boardwalk the birds were startled by our approach and immediately spread their wings. When Jesus entered Jerusalem He chose a plain and simple donkey to be His way of coming to His people. He knew that if He came in all the glory and power of Heaven they would fly away and hide from Him. God’s grace is continually dealing with us in gentleness. He is not so interested in snaring us, as in providing us a quiet place where our hearts can come to rest.
