Donkeys have some interesting symbolism and roles in Christ’s life – and they teach us something about Christ’s character.
Christ is both the Lamb and the Shepherd. He sacrificed for us, and He protects us. Christ’s names – the Lamb of God and the Good Shepherd – are taught in these symbols that were physically present the night of His birth.
Light plays a beautiful role in Christ’s birth, but it’s also characteristic of Christ’s life. His service, His love, and His teaching emanated light and filled others with light as well.
What mercies have you seen this year? Let’s look for the good together and share that goodness with others.
Christ gives us what we need to face the turbulence around us – and that rarely includes taking the turbulence away.
Christ’s example of love and respect was so significant that it has persisted for 2,000 years. His example still stands for us to follow today.
Fear will have no power over us when we fully rely on Jesus Christ.
My spirit responds to Him, even when I can’t see Him, He’s here.
Sometimes we don’t need new messages from God, we just need to remember the ones we’ve already received. God has given His children messages and guidance throughout the history of the world. Each of these messages was significant to the people who received them, but they’re equally significant to us when we remember them.
At 12, I never thought I’d learn so much from climbing a mountain for a few hours. And now, I look back on that experience and see so much more than I ever could have back then.
