Two donkeys walking in Jerusalem, when one said to the other, “Just yesterday I was here carrying Jesus and the people were singing and shouting and throwing down their clothes for me to walk on, and today they don’t even recognize me.”
The other donkey replied,
“That’s how it is my friend, Without Jesus you are nothing.”
Learning the truth of the above story is important to our true growth as we walk along with Jesus, perhaps carrying a load we often get stuck on the praise of the crowd. The crowd gives praise, but is very fickle to whom they give it.
Many men and women serve Jesus with fervor, and then, tragically begin to rely on the quality of their education, the accomplishments of yesterday.
Jesus said: “Without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5, in part.
