donkeys and horses:day one

[Read & meditate on Luke 19.28-44. Jesus entered Jerusalem in a humble way, on a donkey’s colt. How does that exemplify his ministry and way of life?]

Jesus lived a life of vulnerability and humility. Just as he entered our world in a humble, vulnerable way, as a baby, he enters on a lowly, beast of burden. He comes in peace and vulnerability, announcing that the King is here. He continued to reiterate to his disciples that his kingdom was one of servant hood and love, not abuses or even strong uses of manipulative power. His was the way of peace and that is how he entered.
