What Day Is It?

The Burning Question:

It’s National Goof Off Day.  What happened when you were goofing off?

Morning Devotional:

The best thing about coming home from work is hearing my dog bark when I walk in the door. This for a few reasons: One, she’s blind and deaf. She can’t see or hear me coming. Two, there’s no one else in the house to greet me when I come home. It’s just us. And three, it’s really nice to know that I’m needed. She relies on me solely for her care. I give her food, water, shelter, medicine, companionship, discipline, and most of all, love. 

She reciprocates in her own way, to the best of her ability. She’s never been a cuddler, she never learned any tricks and her advanced age means she can only entertain me with her unbelievable capacity to snore. But she provides me with what she can. It may be a lopsided relationship but honestly, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. 

When Jesus made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, there were a lot of people who were really glad to see Him. They were cheering in the streets, shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” But a few days later, the script was flipped and the crowds were calling for Him to be crucified. Did that change His love for the people? Not at all. Their capacity for worship and adoration of their Messiah may have fallen by the wayside but Jesus’ focus on His mission did not. He would give His very life for them and for us. 

If Jesus were to return today, would you be glad to see Him?  Would He know you?  If He is not your Lord and Savior, make Him yours today.

– Beth
