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.
