As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them,
“Why are you untying this colt?”
They answered, “The Master has need of it.”
Luke 19:23
I’d like to share a few words from a nurse that we all would do well to keep in mind: “I have to remind myself that I am a tiny, insignificant part of God’s great plan for somebody and that, when I hold his hand before surgery, or clean up after she has been sick in bed, or draw blood with as little pain as possible, I have been a little bit of God.”
We all have something to offer to God and to others. Our gifts may not appear to be special or extraordinary. But when given over to God, they can do great things. In our verse above, we see the giving of a donkey. Jesus needed it, so the owner surrendered it to him.
We serve God with what we have. Don’t compare your gift to the gifts of others. God has made each of us unique. We just need to be willing to give Jesus our all and watch how God will bless others through us. So, be thankful for the gifts – large or small – that God has given to you.
God, often we don’t feel talented enough, smart enough or good enough. We think that others have so much more to offer. Help us to realize that You have created us just the way You wanted. Help us to be willing to give ourselves over to You knowing that who we are and what we have to offer will be enough in Your hands. Amen.
