Monday of Holy Week

And being found in human form he humbled himself
and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.
~Philippians 2:8

When Jesus sent two disciples to fetch a donkey’s colt on Palm Sunday, they had no other task in the whole world more important than fetching it. If someone had said to them, “You are called to greater things; anyone can fetch a donkey,” and they had not done it, they would have been disobedient. But there was nothing greater for them at that moment than to fetch the donkey for Christ. I wish that we all might do every task, great or small, in this obedience. There is nothing greater than obedience to Christ.  ~J. Heinrich Arnold, Discipleship: Living for Christ in the Daily Grind

O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, teach us Your obedience, teach us Your love.  Amen.
