Devotion for Saturday after Lent 5

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
    Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you;
    righteous and having salvation is he,
humble and mounted on a donkey,
    on a colt, the foal of a donkey. ~ Zechariah 9:9

Our King, the Messiah, the Christ entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday on a donkey, the lowliest of mounts. His humble demeanor and simple mode of transportation couldn’t hide his majesty and power and might. The crowds greeted him with praise and worship.

Lord God, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords humbled himself. Help me to be humble, for pride goes before a fall. I want to humbly serve others and worship You. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
