QTVOTD: Emulating a meek and lowly Savior…

“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 -> me: This wonderful passage is one of which Jesus was fulfilling in scripture when He rode into Jerusalem on the Donkey.  The other passage is Isaiah 62:11.  My reading this morning was actually Matthew 21:1-5 but this reference really had an impression on me.  Over the last week I have whipsawed through emotions and attitudes.  Work has been challenging as I have provided some pretty critical feedback to my management chain although with respect and integrity.  But I ask myself – was I modeling my Savior in being humble, lowly, meek, kind, and patient?  Maybe some, but not totally.  I, like Jesus, must come into every situation with a meek and lowly agenda.  Agendas from which flow a kindness and peace that come from a place of true love.  There are trials that I, and my family, are in the midst of right now that will call on us to come to the table with these attributes of Jesus.  I am confident that If we do, we will not only be making our Lord and Savior proud we will be reflecting Him to those involved in our circumstances.
