The Lord needs it.
En route to Jerusalem for the last time, Jesus told two of his disciples, “Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there … Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ tell him, ‘The Lord needs it’” (Lk. 19:30-31).
Come on! Does the Lord really need anything? He did that day. Prophecy proclaimed: “… your king comes to you … gentle and riding on a donkey” (Zech. 9:9). Jesus didn’t own a donkey. He needed to borrow one.
You, too, have something that the Lord needs for his work in this world … something that no one else has. Loan it to him. Better still, give it to him.
What you have is God’s gift to you;
use of what you have is your gift to God.
