Donkey, Coats & Palms & Why It Matters to Me

Mar 24, 2024    Trevor Hersey

In today's focus, we're taking a step back in time to explore a very special moment – Palm Sunday. It's not just about knowing the history; it's about finding meaning and direction for our lives today.

The Story Begins:

Jesus and His disciples were on their way to Jerusalem when He gave them a simple task. He asked two of them to find a young donkey in a nearby village and bring it to Him, saying if anyone asks, just tell them 'The Lord needs it.' And guess what? They found it just as Jesus said they would!

A Lesson in Trust:

This isn't just a tale from long ago; it's a reminder that like those disciples, we too are guided in our daily lives. It's about being open to instruction and trusting in the guidance we're given, whether it’s as clear as the task given to the disciples or as personal as the nudging in our own hearts.

What's This Mean for Us?

Just as the disciples were sent on a mission, we're reminded that we are also sent each day to spread positivity and hope. 🕊️ It’s not about being perfect; it’s about being willing to follow and to bring joy and light to others.

The Donkey's Role:

Ever felt ordinary or overlooked? This story highlights how even a humble donkey played a big part in Jesus' journey. It's a powerful message that everyone has a role to play, no matter how small they might feel.

Letting Go:

People in the crowd laid down their coats and palm branches as Jesus passed by. It's a symbol for us to lay down our own labels and the things we hide behind, finding our true identity and strength in faith.

Your Takeaway:

Whether you’re looking for direction, understanding your purpose, feeling ordinary, or holding onto labels, there’s something here for you. Let’s discover together how we can apply these lessons in our lives and find the courage to walk the path set before us.
