Wednesday Whisperings March 16

The Reading:

“Go into the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ just say this, ‘The Lord needs it.'”     Luke 19: 30-31.


The Whispering:

“The Lord needs it.”

As we enter Holy Week, these are good words to carry with us. Jesus sent his disciples ahead of him to fetch a donkey from the next village. When the owner of the beast confronted them, they responded as the Lord had instructed them:  The Lord needs it. The donkey became the conveyance that brought Jesus into the holy city later that day.

What is it of yours that the Lord needs? What do you offer that is precious to you because the Lord needs it?  Your time? Your talent? Your treasure? We are the hands and feet of Jesus in our world today. What does the Lord need from you in order that we might transform this world into the Kingdom of God?

You are the conveyance that brings Jesus into the world. Give generously.
