The donkey knew its maker

I found myself referring to a ‘donkey’ quite a few times of late, and the thoughts below are once more worthy of simple consideration. This is an excerpt from a post written some time ago. Truly, the Lord does all things well.

                                                          From ‘the donkey’

….How strange that the Lord of glory, the Saviour, and king of the Jews would further humble himself by arriving into Jerusalem not by a procession of royal pageantry, but upon a common beast of burden; a work animal.

With each successive step taken by the donkey leading closer to the city, the Lord was en route to the location of the greatest humility: the place of the Skull.

The moral glory of the Lord Jesus Christ could not be hidden here,  for he came not in the splendor of King Solomon, but in the triumph of quiet dignity. Such is the worth of the redeemer.

    The smallest details matter and mean something don’t they. I. Read that post…had never really considered that donkey. That stupid animal understood how it came to be….what’s our problem? I think that donkey may come up in Sunday School today…seems to fit…God provides what we need eh?

      You know that text Wally that reads, ‘I suppose even the world itself could not contain the books that could be written,’ (paraphrasing, but you get the point).

      Included in that thought are the endless details, the seemingly small things while at the time, were not noticed, understood, or appreciated.

      ‘Gather up the fragments that nothing be lost.’ The Lord however has no fragments regarding Himself. Everything we know of him in the word can be illuminated more deeply than we can imagine I suppose.

    What sheeple don’t realize, is that the little donkey, was far more intricate and detailed in its makeup than any of Solomon’s man-made glamor. Living cells are so complicated, that what we can do with our hands is shoddy by comparison. Praise Him!!!

      Oh how God’s wisdom shines at every turn, and how He can use anything to sing His praise. The beast of burden carried Him who would FINISH THE WORK He came to do…
