THE DONKEY’S CROSS

April 3, 2012

“Bring me the colt of a donkey,”
Was the Master’s request.

 

A young donkey was brought to Jesus
to carry him into Jerusalem.

A week later, Jesus was ordered
to be crucified.

 

The little donkey so loved the Lord,
that he wanted to help him carry the cross.

 

But, alas, he was pushed away.
The sad little donkey waited to say,
goodbye until nearly all had left.

 

As he turned to leave, the shadow of
the cross fell upon the back and
shoulders of the little donkey.

 

And there it has remained,
a tribute to the loyalty
and love of the humblest of
God’s creatures.
