Tell the people of Israel, ‘Look, your King is coming to you. He is humble, riding on a donkey – riding on a donkey’s colt.’
Matthew 21:5 

As we begin Easter week I’ve been thinking about what that really means. How should I react or do I even need to. I grew up in a church where every palm sunday it was the same message. A message of people waving branches, Jesus riding into town on a donkey. Everyone loved Him. He was a hero. For a day.

And I guess I wonder should this week matter more? This was the biggest most important week in the life of Jesus Christ. And if He truly is the most important person in my life, shouldn’t there be more? More than worship practice, 3 church services, new dresses, easter baskets and a big lunch? How do I need to prepare my heart for celebrating the week ahead. How do I need to prepare for participating in worship Easter Sunday morning. How bout you? What do you need to do to make it matter more?
