This is the man we meet in the Gospels. This is the Lord we need to get to know better and better. He is the triumphant king but he is also the humble one who rides on a donkey.
Another temptation for us is to rest in an appraisal of ourselves based on a tallying up of our good works without reflecting on the imperfect motives that may underlay the works or the many failings that may out way them (in other words, selective memory. Remembering the good and not the bad). In other words there is the temptation in seeing ourselves just as superficially as we would like our friends to. Or we might be tempted to worry unduly about our comfort, our security, our safety, anxious about unknown future and the calamities or crisis it could bring. But if we are to retrain our minds to have the mind of Christ we must empty ourselves as He did, of these trivialities, deceptions, detours.
Let us be like Jesus focusing on The Father.
Focusing on pleasing The Father and giving Him glory.
