:Have you ever ridden on a donkey? What about an elephant.When I was a kid they used to have a huge elephant at the zoothat kids could ride on. I never had the opportunity to try this.But I could not imagine riding a donkey. A donkey is very strong,and has a good memory. They are stubborn and have a curiousnature. Donkeys do not like the rain or being alone. They aremoody and will even kick and bite. I read somewhere that a male
 
donkey is called ³Jack´ and a female donkey is called ³Jenny´. Doyou know anyone by those names ± Jack or Jenny? Do theysound a little bit like some of the characteristics of a donkey?Maybe, you might even have some of these characteristics?One day, Jesus asked his disciples to get him a donkey to ride.What do you think the disciples thought? Why in earth wouldJesus want to ride a stubborn donkey? If it decided not to goanywhere, what would Jesus do? You know donkeys do have amind of their own, and will not listen to a master very well.Maybe, sometimes you are like that?However, the disciples obeyed Jesus because he had asked themto do this. How many times does your mom have to ask you to dosomething? One, two, three«.and maybe when she calls you byyour first, middle, and last name? Then, you think she is mad andyou¶d probably better do it.The disciples went and found a donkey and brought it back toJesus. I wonder if they had to push it, shove it, or maybe bribe itinto coming. The bible doesn¶t say«but the donkey came alongwith them. They put their coats on the donkey¶s back which madea cushion for Jesus to sit on. I know a horse uses a saddle, but Ihave never heard of a donkey wearing a saddle.As Jesus rode into Jerusalem the people were so glad to see him.They gave him a grand welcome. They were so excited to seeJesus that they waved palm branches and shouted praises toHim. All the people lifted up their hands and praised God, saying ³Hosanna to the Son of David, blessed is he who comes in thename of the Lord´.How many of you have ever been to your favorite baseball orfootball game? Did you get so excited that you hollered until youhurt your throat? Maybe, you got upset if they did not score thepoints that you were hoping. All around you your friends andstrangers were screaming, jumping up and down, waving their
 
arms throughout the game. You all were really excited about thegame hoping the team you were rooting for would win.These people were really excited. It was not every day that theysaw someone so famous as Jesus. They had heard all kinds of amazing things about him, and maybe wanted to see some of these miracles for themselves. Some of them may have wantedto be healed. They were excited! Just like you were at the gameyou went to. They waved palm branches shouting ³hosanna´.The word hosanna means ± a cry of praise to God. A palm branchis a symbol of triumph ± happiness. In ancient Rome, aprecession of people waving palm beaches meant there was avictory of an army. The people were expressing their joy.When your team wins the game, do you tell anyone? Do youcelebrate in some way? Maybe you all go out for ice-cream orpizza? How would you feel if in the middle of your celebrationsomeone came up to you and told you to stop it that there wasno reason to celebrate because they only by one score? Your joymay be a little dampened by the comment.Some of the Pharisees tried to get the crowd to stop praisingJesus. They told the disciples to get them under control.Often we go to church and forget why we are really there. We arethere to worship God. People worship God in different ways.Some jump up and testify, others wave their hand when theysing, and some may clap their hands. This is all part of worshiping God. Some put money in the offering plate whileothers sit quietly and enjoy the presence of God. These are allways we can praise and worship God.Palm Sunday is one week before Easter Sunday, and it is a timeto praise God for what He has done. It is good to know that wecan express joy, pride, happiness, for His victory over the grave.
