“Bring me the colt of a Donkey” was the Master’s request.
A young donkey was brought to Jesus to carry Him to Jerusalem.
Five days later He was ordered to be crucified.
The Little Donkey so loved The Lord that he wanted to help Him carry the cross.
But Alas, he has 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 his back and shoulders.
And there it has remained, a tribute to the loyalty and love of the humblest of God’s creatures. *
What a beautiful tribute to our beloved Donkeys!
The Donkeys were so important to Christ that they are mentioned 444 times in the Bible.
The humble Donkey is also the only mammal given a speech in the Bible.
