You Have Something the Lord Needs

The Lord needs it.
  —Luke 19:31

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.
