“If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this? tell him, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.” Jesus in Mark 11:3. Devotion from Daily Bread: Jesus instructed His disciples to take another man’s donkey. The Son of God told His men to “loose it and bring it to Him” Mark 11:2. If someone objected, they were to say, “The Lord has need of it,” and they would then be permitted to lead it away. That donkey carried Christ into Jerusalem on what we call Psalm Sunday. There’s a lesson here for us to consider. We all have things that we hold dear. We may have thought, I could never part with that! It may be a new truck, a coat, some other possession, or our precious few free hours during the week. Will we be open to give when someone obviously needs something we have? If you sense that the Spirit is speaking to you, let your time or possession go, as the owner released his animal to Jesus. He will then be glorified as He deserves! God gives to us so we can give to others! Have a wonderful day.
