Ah, Palm Sunday!
What a joy-filled time, right?
Children singing, “Hosanna!” People shouting,
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Palm branches waving, cloaks spread over the road,
giving a royal welcome to Jesus as He rides a
donkey colt into Jerusalem.
But for Jesus this was a time of
joy mixed with sorrow; joy mixed with anger!
What brought great grief to Jesus this day?
What brought great anger as well?
Think deeply about all that the Triumphal Entry
meant to our Lord as we get on the road from Bethany
and move into the Temple courts with Jesus…
